"Crichana" is an alternate name for the Atroari tribe. The origin of the name Crichana is unclear; it may
have been a band name or the name of another tribe that was absorbed into the Atroari.
Here are links to our webpages about the Crichana tribe and language:
Here are a few good books about the Crichanas:
