The Aguaruna (or Awajún, their endonym) are an indigenous people of the Peruvian jungle. They live primarily on the Marañón River in northern Peru near the border with Ecuador and several of the Marañón's tributaries, the rivers Santiago, Nieva, Cenepa, Numpatakay and Chiriaco. Currently, they possess titled community lands in four of Peru's regions: Amazonas, Cajamarca, Loreto, and San Martín. A significant Awajún population also lives in the Alto Mayo river basin in the Department of San Martín. According to Peru's 1993 Census the Aguaruna numbered approximately 5,000. World Census data for 2000 lists their population at just over 8,000. It is also said that they were influenced by cultural groups that were immigrants from the islands of Melanesia. They have always had the reputation of being brave warriors, standing out for their skills in war. Physically there are differences between the aguarunas and the other inhabitants of the Peruvian rainforest. Las comunidades aguarunas han mantenido por cientos de años sus tradiciones y costumbres, utilizando los mismos elementos en la fabricación de sus diversos utensilios. Actualmente éstos son comercializados como artesanías y tienen gran aceptación en el extranjero por sus finos acabados y bellas decoraciones.
