Introduction

South American mythology covers a vast and diverse area. We have already extracted the Inca civilisation from the top end as it has its own section. This leaves scattered tribes in Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Colombia where the EL-DORADO rumors started.

Then we plunge through Brazil, down the Amazon and Xingu Rivers, until we reach the coast. We've skipped the Caribbean which has its own section and managed to avoid Borneo and other Indonesian bits which can be found in our South-East Asian department.


REGIONS COVERED: The Amazon, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, Guiana (Guyana), Paraguay, Patagonia, Peru, Western Andes.

Many Gods are spread across different regions, cultures and tribes. We've tried to pin them down to a particular area if possible. But amendments and corrections are always welcome, especially from people with first-hand knowledge. So if you live in the region and would like to comment, we'd love to hear from you. Contact us here.

TRIBES, CULTURES AND PEOPLES COVERED: Acawai, Arawak, Auca, Calina, Chaco, Chibcha, Huarochiri, Karaya, Kuikuru, Mamaiuran, Ona, Paracas, Tukano, Tupi, Tupari, Tupinamba, Warau, Yahgan, Yanomami.

The Gods told us to do it.
