For the anthropologist Bernard Arcand, writing The Cuivaswas a lifelong project: that of providing an intimate portrait of a small population of nomadic hunter-gatherers living in the Llanos, in Colombia. At the end of the 1960s, during the era of revolutionary fervour, the young anthropologist spent two years with the Cuivas, sharing their daily lives and studying their relationship to the world. From this experience, he drew an inspiring reflection on the classic problems of social anthropology: the causes of wealth and inequality, the origin of hierarchy, the organization of space and time, collective or individual identity.
