The Okwashonee (The People of the Mist)
The Okwashonee (ä-kwä-shō’-nee) live within the confines of a large swampy region called the Okwasa Marshes. These people have learned to thrive and live in relative harmony with their harsh surroundings. The Okwashonee live in small villages consisting of three styles; reed huts built upon stilt platforms, wattle and daub reed huts, or elaborate house complexes built into the twisted swamp trees to keep out the swamp waters and wildlife. They make their way across the marshes by boat, specially constructed raised boardwalks, or on special pontoon long shoes.
