Bari Culture and History (Barí, Motilon)

As a complement to our Bari language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Bari tribe and their society.

Sponsored Links


The emphasis of these pages is on Baris and other American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Bari history is interesting and important, but the Bari 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 of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
