Crash Water Village, located in the North Rupununi district of Region 9, was originally called by the Makushi name for a bird; this was later distorted by the English language causing it to be known its current name. Prior to the establishment of the Village, the land was used as farming ground for the people of Yakarinta. However, due to the difficulties experienced by children left in Yakarinta while their parents went farming in Crash Water; the farmers found it more convenient to establish a community in the vicinity of their farms. Hence, Crash Water Village was formed.
