The Moruka River

The Moruka River is a river in the Barima-Waini region of northern Guyana. Settlements along the river include Santa Rosa, Kamwatta and Asakata. Around 5300 years ago, Warao on the Moruka River developed the dugout canoe, making possible the peopling of the Caribbean.

During their occupation period the Dutch maintained outposts on the Moruka River.
