"Mitua" is a name used to refer to several indigenous groups living along the border between Colombia and Venezuela-- especially the Guayabero tribe, but also the Piapoco, the Bare, the Mandahuaca, and a few others. The name Mitua originally comes from a name for the Guayaberos in the language of their Guahibo neighbors, and became generalized to other native tribes of this region.
