About Orealla

A small village of indigenous peoples of Guyana made up of Amerindians. The village is on the Corentyne River, overlooking Suriname. Most of the people live in the jungle. Orealla is the Big town in this region. Having been in the small village it is peaceful and simple. Their are no electricity, no cars and the main road is a 8 foot wide dirt path which is constantly eroding because of heavy rains. The grass huts are slowly going away and you see a lot of wood and brick structures. Many of the people still bathe in the river.

Amerindians live mostly in reservations and villages in remote parts of the interior. Their standard of living is much lower than that of most Guyanese, and their ability to participate in decisions affecting their lands, cultures, traditions, and the allocation of natural resources is virtually nil.

The Amerindian people have been living in Guyana since the earliest of historical times, and are thus entitled to a recognition of their ownership of the land under Guyanese Law.
