Most of Guyana is tropical rainforest and savanna (grassy plains), with some mountainous areas, many of the mountains in the form of "tepuis" or table-top mountains. Most of the indigenous Amerindian peoples live there. The majority of the people in Guyana live on the coastal plains, a thin strip of flat land on the Atlantic coast, much of which is under sea-level and is protected by a sea-wall. This is where the sugar and rice plantations are found. The name "Guyana" comes from an Amerindian word meaning "Land of Many Waters", as there are many rivers in Guyana, such as the Essequibo, the Demerara, the Potaro, the Pomeroon, the Berbice.
