American Indian language * Native Americans facts * Native American Indians jewelry


"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.
