The Orinoco Delta was first colonized by the humans back in Medium Neolithic.

For the past 8.000 years ago one of the last native South American people, have taken shelter inside its mangrove swamp labyrinth: the Warao. Deep in the swamps it is still possible to make out a world ruled by spirits where small and isolated native communities struggle to survive.

The existance of ancient animistic rites and the acceptance of transgender people among the warao society could be the last remains of those old pre-Columbian traditions, never photographied before.
