"Telire" is an alternate name for the Cabecar tribe of Costa Rica. It is the name of one of the important Cabecar subgroups,
and comes from the Cabecar name of a river that runs through their territory. Telire is sometimes also used to refer to the
dialect of the Cabecar language which is spoken in this region.
