"Maulieni" is the tribal name of one of the Baniwa subgroups of Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia. In their language it means "children of the goat." This band is also known as Kawa, which is their name in the language of the neighboring Nhengatu tribe, or Aini-Dakenai, which means "grandchildren of the wasp."
