The '''U'wa people''' are an indigenous people living in the cloud forests of northeastern Colombia. Historically, the U'wa numbered as many as 20,000, scattered over a homeland that extended across the Venezuela-Colombia border. Some 7-8,000 U'wa are alive today.
The U'wa are known to neighboring indigenous peoples as "the thinking people" or "the people who speak well". They were formerly called Tunebo, but today prefer to be known as ''U'wa'', meaning "people".
The U'wa people live in northeast Colombia, in the departments of Arauca, Boyaca, Casanare, Santander and Northern Santander. Historically, they have also lived in what is now Venezuela.
