"Icana" and "Içana" are alternate names for the Baniwa people of Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia.
Içana is actually the native name of a river that flows through the territory of the Baniwa tribe. The Baniwas
are therefore often known as "Baniwa do Içana."
Here are links to our webpages about the Icana tribe and language:
