GUZMAN BARCENES, Vicente Bolívar; ALVARADO RAMOS, Nancy Gloria  and  ALVARADO RAMOS, Erika Nataly. Cultural traits of the Chimbus and Guarangas in the province of Bolivar. RCUISRAEL [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.1, pp.43-54.  Epub Apr 13, 2020. ISSN 2631-2786.

Chimbus culture was settled in the area where today is the city San José Chimbo, one of the cantons of the province of Bolívar in Ecuador. This culture was characterized by their widen knowledge on agriculture, weaving, pottery, and livestock. The remains found throughout my research show that the community used clay to make utensils with a little rustic texture; their rough vessels carry in their neck a kind of rings, made with a reed, with eyes in forms of coffee’s pepas. The Wuarankas had the same Chimbos´ characteristics; it is said that these peoples shared the same language- a mixture of bar- bacoa, cañari, and panzaleo. Consequently, the Kichwa language appeared during the commercial relationships among these and Peruvian peoples (Itier, 2015).

Keywords : Cultural traits; Chimbos; Wuarankas; traces; ancestors.
