The Piaroa, also called the Wothuja, are indigenous people of the Amazonia, traditionally living along the middle course of the Orinoco river, and the middle and upper course of the Sipapo and Cuao rivers in the Vichada. They currently inhabit the Gran Selva de Matavén Reserve, where the San Luis de Zama and La Urbana communities are located.
