Bora is an indigenous people that lives in the lower Igará Paraná and the mouths of the Cahuinar River, tributaries of the Putumayo River, in the Colombian department of Amazonas and in some places in Peru, to which they were forcibly transferred by rubber tappers. There are approximately 1700 people. They live in octagonal communal houses or “malocas” with a main entrance and two lateral ones. The maloca is considered a representation of the cosmos and opens with a todzigwa party. Kümüba (maguare) ceremonial drums are found near the main entrance of the maloca.
