Mulukuku

Mulukuku is a municipality in the North Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region of Nicaragua. It was established as an asentimiento, or refugee community, during the early years of the war with the contra. People who lived in the remote rural areas and who were threatened by the contras, were brought to Mulukuku for safety. During the war a training school for the Nicaraguan army was located in the community. The community straddled the only road in the region that connected the Department of Matagalpa with Lisawe, Siuna, and eventually Puerto Cabezas. A large bridge crossing the Rio Tuma had been under construction and was nearly complete, when, in October 1988, Hurricane Joan struck Nicaragua. The bridge was destroyed and the community devastated. The national government committed to reconstruction and the community has flourished since that time. With the bridge complete, Mulukuku has become a regional commercial center. "Mulukukú" is a word in Miskito language that means Rivera de Sahinos.

Country - Nicaragua

Flag of Nicaragua
Nicaragua, officially the Republic of Nicaragua , is the largest country in the Central American isthmus, bordered by Honduras to the northwest, the Caribbean to the east, Costa Rica to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. Managua is the country's capital and largest city and is also the third-largest city in Central America, behind Tegucigalpa and Guatemala City. The multi-ethnic population of six million includes people of indigenous, European, African, and Asian heritage. The main language is Spanish. Indigenous tribes on the Mosquito Coast speak their own languages and English.

Originally inhabited by various indigenous cultures since ancient times, the Spanish Empire conquered the region in the 16th century. Nicaragua gained independence from Spain in 1821. The Mosquito Coast followed a different historical path, with the English colonizing it in the 17th century and later coming under the British rule, as well as some minor Spanish interludes in the 19th century. It became an autonomous territory of Nicaragua in 1860 and the northernmost part of it was later transferred to Honduras in 1960. Since its independence, Nicaragua has undergone periods of political unrest, dictatorship, occupation and fiscal crisis, leading to the Nicaraguan Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s and the Contra War of the 1980s.
