Southern Barasano (Southern Barasana)

"Southern Barasano" is an alternate name for the Barasana tribe of Colombia. The origin for this name is that the Bara and Waimaha tribes of Colombia, located just to the north of the Barasanas, are sometimes called "Northern Barasano" in Colombia. The tribes themselves do not use these designations.
