"Ihini" is an alternate spelling for the Bare tribe of Venezuela and Brazil.
It comes from the native name of one of their major tribal divisions and
literally means "those over there" (which is how their kinsmen in the other division,
the Arihini, referred to them.) The name Ihini is also used to refer to the Bare dialect once
used by this group.
