The Uros people have lived in these flouting islands for hundred of years, These ancient people knew how extract the abundant Totora reed to put them together and form little flouting islands that will be attached later.

Even though the world is rapidly changing and more people decide to live in the city, the Uros people has continued with their tradition of living and making this flouting islands, For this reason they are know as the water clan.

The work they do is not easy as they have to change the Totora from time to time, having to remake their houses, boats and land Because all of them are from Totora that has to be changed every certain period.

Taquile is also well know for their handmade art (textiles, pottery, etc). Contrary to many other cultures in Taquile the men are the ones that do the textiles. As a result in order to marry and have a good status in the community they have to show how well they can do their textiles. You will see many of them doing their textiles in the way and will be able to buy some of them.
