To the south of the Strait of Magallanes, in the region of the Beagle channel, Navarino island and its surrounding islands, is the home of the most austral ethnic group of the continent: the Yagán or Yámana people.
At the present time, only 74 surviving members inhabit Villa Ukika and Puerto Williams, in Navarino Island.
The main hunting weapon of the Yagán people, was the harpoon, which measured almost 3 meters in length. The tip was made of indented fish bone. The arrowhead, initially made of stone, was later on carved in glass, being an easier material to work. Glass began to be used by the Austral nomads at least, in XVIIIth century.
Their culture, like the Kawésqar people, was a nomadic people, dedicated to fishing and hunting.
Their canoes and attires were similar to use by the Kawésqar people .
