    Abstract

    The Uros population is one of the probably older indigenous populations from the Peru. It is located in the floating islands on Lake Titicaca in the Peruvian Highland. Its native language is Aymara, which persists in all its residents, being children and young adults who also dominate Spanish as a second language. The waters of the lake, as well as its firm ancestral culture have been factors that have maintained this closed population; they have maintained their ethnic characteristics for centuries. The total population of the Uros in the year 2002 is little less than 400 inhabitants (1).
