The Yaruro people who live in the Resguardo Caño Mochuelo are not from that territory, they come from the department of Vichada, from an ancestral place called Akane-jundo.
The current Yaruro settlement that is located in the Resguardo Caño Mochuelo (El Calvario or Unuma Community) was established in 2001, after families from the Quintos Patios community of the Yamarero people, who considered themselves as an independent people. There are no records of such separation, given that most historical documents consider the Yaruro and Yamarero one and the same people.
Because this community was forced to settle (taking into account that they were hunters - nomadic gatherers) today many of the young people do not make great walks through the territory in search of food. Instead, they have adopted a subsistence diet based on products such as sweet and sour yucca, banana, yam, pineapple, and sweet potato, as well as basic livestock.
