The Canaima National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, internationally recognized as one of the natural wonders of the world, is the ancestral land of the Pemón indigenous people. Despite the intimate connection of this indigenous people with nature and their strong historical and cultural bond with this area, their relationship with the Canaima National Park and World Patronage has not been a happy one. This article examines why and suggests ways in which UNESCO could help ensure that the worldviews and rights of traditional inhabitants receive greater consideration in the future implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
