Barasano del Sur (Barasana del Sur)
"Barasano del Sur" is an alternate name for the Barasana tribe of Colombia.
The origin for this name is that the Bara and Waimaha tribes of Colombia,
located just to the north of the Barasanas, are sometimes called "Barasano del Norte" in Colombia.
The tribes themselves do not use these designations.
