The Kuragao [Koo-ruh-gow] are an indigenous people of Dovani.
The Kuragao people are found exclusively in Kurageri, however small nomadic maritime groups spend part of the year on the island of Rapua, the northern most and largest island of the State of Rapa Pile and a small population has migrated to Sekowo.
The history of the Kuragao people can be traced back thousands of years, however most of this has generally been through oral tradition, with written records only starting to be used over the last ftwo-hundred and fifty years.
Kuragao history is split into four eras; Ancient, Pre-Colonial, Colonial and Modern with several transition periods spanning several hundred years.
The ancient history of the Kuragao people spans a period of time ranging from 1,000BCE to 1,000CE.
The ancient history of the Kuragao is the least clear, do to the natural distortion inherent in oral tradition.
The Kuragao people during this time were only just beginning to organize into groups larger than individual villages. It was during this time that the term Kuragao (the indigenous people) and Kurageri (the name of their territory) first started to take shape, however the original term that the modern words stemmed from is no longer known.
The pre-colonial history of the Kuragao people spans the period between 1500CE and 2500CE.
The pre-colonial history of the Kuragao spans a millenium and is considered the (first) golden age of the Kuragao.
The Kuragao by the fourteenth century had been organized into large tribes for hundreds of years. During this time the first inter-tribal confederations were beginning to form and the Kuragao languages were starting to blend and evolve into larger regional languages.
The Colonial period is the shortest of the historic eras, spanning the period between 2509CE and 2594CE.
The colonial period is in many ways a continuation fo the pre-colonial era. During this time little actual fundamental change.
By this point the Kuragao languages had harmonized into a single language spoken by all of the tribes. It's thought that had Sekowo (or any other entity) not entered the area that the four tribal confederations would have come together to form a single Kuragerian federation.
The modern history of the Kuragao people represents the period between 2600 and the present.
