Description This narrative tells the story of the place of origin of the Murui people. The Murui live in the Caquetá-Putumayo River Basin, which straddles the border of southern Colombia and northern Peru. Their language, Murui (also called bue), belongs to the Witotoan language family. A major theme of the narrative is one of the internal division within the Murui-Muina people (also known as ‘Witoto’) into the Murui and the Mɨnɨka. This story is shared by all the Murui-Muina clans of the Caquetá- Putumayo region. It refers to a common place of origin, the ‘Hole of Humanity’, out of which the groups emerged and became human beings. ---DOI:
