As a complement to our Baniwa language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Baniwa tribe and their society.
The emphasis of these pages is on Baniwas and other
American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Baniwa history is interesting and
important, but the Baniwa Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
