In Venezuela, the Warao share a set of myths and beliefs that are specific to the tribe. For these natives settled around the Orinoco Delta, everything is centred on the river and aquatic life. Andrea Santolaya gives us a personal interpretation of this tribal mythology which blends ancestral traditions and the heritage of Spanish missionaries. In these images, the omnipresent female figure testifies to the essential role of women within the tribe.
