"Chuncho" is an alternate name for the Ashaninka tribe. It is a Spanish version of the Quechua word ch'unchu,
which means "forest dwellers." Although this is not an inherently negative word in Quechua, it has come to be used meaning
"savage" or "uncivilized" in Peruvian Spanish, and is considered offensive by many Ashaninka people.
