Warao Children of Cambalache

100.00 150.00

Cambalache is a very unique area along the Orinoco River in Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela. There is a landfill called El Bote “The Can” where an indigenous tribe called, Warao has migrated to find cloths and other resources. Years ago, people from the Warao community lived high up in the Amazon and would travel one week by canoe until they discovered Cambalache Landfill. The landfill was already dominated by an aggressive community called Cirquo, and after migration, the Warao needed to settle in an area further away. This was a case where people who were once completely in the jungle and indigenous became reliant on a landfill. Typically they pick from the trash for their own reuse. For example, a refrigerator is used as a closet next to their hut. Plastic toys are reused by kids and not resold. So you end up with this eclectic assortment of found objects in this community still governed by a tribal chief in a community struggling and trying to understand and fit in a modern world outside the jungle.
