Panare Indian from Venezuela - Woven Basket Vase 14 " aprox



The Penare Indians (Panare, Panari, Abira, Eye) live in the Caicaro De Orinoco basin of the Cuchivero River, in Bolivar State. Comprised of over 1,200 members located in over twenty villages spread out throughout the region, two major groups of the Penare exist currently, located in the jungles and highlands of Western Guiana. These mountainous and tropical forest dwelling tribes are nearly all monolingual. Each village consists of up to thirty members, each ruled by a single Chief. They are hunter gatherers but do take in part in farming small garden plots in the center of each village.

The Penare are also known for their fantastic basket weaving abilities, making some of the finest tribal baskets in the entire Amazon basin area. Traditionally the men of the tribe create the baskets, while the women make the jewelry and create the clothing for the tribe.
