: Description of the People living in the Bolivian Lowlands

The lowlands are divided into three ecological zones: - in the south, the arid region of large Chaco, - in north, the zone of transition from the East and - in the east, Amazonia with its two departments. The 32 people are distributed as follows: in the department of Santa Cruz we meet the majority of the natives of which - in large Chaco: Chiriguanos, Isosenos 70 000 which speaks the guarani, Chiquitanos in the East are 80 000, Guarayos also which speaks the guarani in western north about the East and two relatively small people Ayoreodes 5000 people and Sirionos with 1800 people. The large ethnic variety meets in Amazonia with small people which have a well marked territory and a quite particular development. Their economy is based primarily on agriculture and fishing. Why they is so many people in the lowlands? especially for historical reasons.
