About Bagua Chica
Bagua Chica is popularly known as Bagua, to distinguish it from Bagua Grande, a city nearby that also is part of the Amazonas department. The history of the area where it’s settled nowadays is very related to the bagua culture, developed between the 1300 to 200 b.C. It’s considered as one of the most ancient of the north-east of Peru. The old bagua stood out particularly in pottery, but they were also good farmers and hunters. The lifestyle of this culture was very tied to the Bagua river -that is known today as Utcubamba river-, so they were good swimmers and fishermen. During the 15th and 16th centuries the little nation of Bagua was big enough to take up a great part of the valley of low Utcubamba. Their importance was so big that they even had their own language, sophisticated and rich in words, that reflected the potential that they would reach if there was not Spanish colinization. It’s a pity that today the language of the bagua is mostly extinguished; they only conserve some words at school and references that show their existence.
