Mundé (Munde)

"Munde" is an alternate name for the Aikana tribe. It's not clear how the tribe came to be called this (they do not use it as a tribal name themselves,) but it is a man's name in the Aikana language, so it's likely that an early European visitor mistook an individual's name for the name of his tribe.
