"Kaxiriri" was an alternate name for the Apurina tribe, an American Indian culture of Brazil.
It is rarely used anymore because of its confusing similarity to Kaxarari, a different Brazilian tribe
speaking an entirely unrelated language. Kaxiriri was originally the tribal name of one of the
Apurina bands or villages.
