Abstract

The Guambiano Indians are an indigenous tribe of Colombia. Numbering 8,000, their only location is on a reservation just outside the village of Silvia. They retain many unique cultural traits, but are very slowly becoming acculturated into modern Colombian society. Although more nourishing foods are available to them, the Guambianos have a very starchy diet, based upon their subsistence pattern.
