“Gathered around the scarce water sources of the coast, their base of subsistence was the fishing and the collection of maritime products, for which they used rafts of skin of marine wolf. Very simple in their social organization and with the limited means of subsistence offered by their environment, the monkeys survived until the mid-nineteenth century, when the establishment of the nitrate industry in the region ended up completely disrupting their way of life “.
