Triometesen: See Akuriyo
"Triometesen" is the name of a subgroup of the Akuriyo tribe. The name means "like the Tiriyos" (a neighboring tribe)
in the Akuriyo language; the Triometesen may not have been a distinct band, but rather just communities of Akuriyo-speaking
people who had a high degree of intermarriage with the Tiriyos. This tribal name is not commonly used today.
