Angel Falls to be Renamed Kerepakupai-Meru

The world’s tallest falls in Venezuela is wanted by Venezuela President Hugo Chavez to be renamed back to its indigenous name of Kerepakupai-Meru,

Its present name is Angel Falls which commemorates the American pilot who first spotted it on 1933 with a height of 3,212 feet (979 meters), and an uninterrupted drop of 2,648 feet (807 meters).

To this Chavez expressed, “How can Venezuelans could accept the idea that the highest waterfall in the world was discovered by a man who came from the United States in a plane? We should change that name, right? With all respect to that man who came, who saw it."

This new move of Chavez could also be easily attributed to his vocal anti-American sentiments and policies.
