Hi, I couldn't think up anything to say so I'm going to tell you about the Guarani weavers of Bolivia and review one of the online puzzles we have for you to play on our website, which is of an actual Guarani weaving. Our online puzzles are all made using our very own photos of Bolivia. (Copyright BoliviaBella.com)
The Guarani Puzzle
is a picture of a hand woven cloth by a Guarani weaver. The Guarani are very well known for their weaving and live in tribes, and speak the Guarani language. Their tribes range to Paraguay between the Uruguay River and lower Paraguay River, the Misiones Province of Argentina, southern Brazil as far as north as Rio de Janeiro, and parts of southern Bolivia.
The Guarani language spoken in most tribes is also one of the two official languages of Paraguay and is a signal of national distinctiveness. In Bolivia the Guarani tribes live in portions of Santa Cruz, Chuquisaca, Tarija Departments. This goes as far north as Santa Cruz de la Sierra and includes portions of the Guapay, Parapetí, and Ɨtɨka Guasu (or Pilcomayo) River valleys. In Bolivia they are known as the Assembly of the Guarani people. They hand weave great patterns on blankets, tops, sheets, and cloth. No one weave looks the same.
