Indigenous peoples in Uruguay
Indigenous peoples in Uruguay are practically extinct.
Scholars do not agree about the first settlers in what is now Uruguay; but there is evidence that there was human presence some 10,000 years BCE, the Homo catalanensis culture.
The Charrúa peoples were perhaps the most-talked-about indigenous people of the Southern Cone in what was known as the Banda Oriental. They were a semi-nomadic people that sustained themselves through fishing, hunting, and gathering.
Other significant tribes were the Minuane, Yaro, Güenoa, Chaná, Bohán, Arachán.
