Since time immemorial the Wajuru have lived in a rich multiethnic context, regularly exchanging spouses, blood, music and all kinds of knowledge with other peoples whose social configurations depend on this interaction. Known as the most warrior-like people among the other neighbouring indigenous groups, the Wajuru are also famous for welcoming visitors and identifying themselves as a ‘hard-working’ people and consumers of chicha, a fermented drink produced by women.
