The floating islands of the Uros are an ancestral ethnic group. This group of people has lived on Lake Titicaca since time immemorial. Even today they still maintain their original way of life: fishing, hunting birds and collecting eggs. But their main skill lies in the manufacture of various items made of totora reeds. Totora is a plant, which grows on the shores and shallows of Lake Titicaca. The men are excellent fishermen and the women are expert weavers. These valuable skills have been passed down from generation to generation.
