Learning Indian languages * Indian art pictures * Indian genealogy records


There are several different South American tribal names spelled "Wari" in English:

1) Wari, the endonym (self-designation) of the Pakaas Nova tribe of Brazil. It means "we" in their tribal language.

2) Huari, a pre-Columbian civilization of Andean Peru, known as the Wari Empire in English. They existed between 500 and 1000 AD, before the time of the Incas.

3) Uarí, an alternate name for the Aikana tribe of Brazil. This probably came from their tribe's name in the language of one of their neighbors. They are not related to the Wari/Pakaas Nova tribe.
