Introduction / History

The Korubo live in the lower Javari Valley in the Amazon of Brazil. The tribe was first contacted near the end of the last century. They have had violent confrontations with nearby groups and also killed trespassers on their land at the beginning of this century.

The Korubo hunt with clubs and poison darts. They live in community huts. They do not appear to be religious. On a few occasions they have practiced infanticide. The men and women are painted with red dye. They eat fish, spider monkeys and wild pigs as well as corn.

The Korubo have a little knowledge of agriculture which helps with their crops. Malaria has killed some of them. They speak Panoan. They are called Caceteiros by their neighbors, a term which means "men with clubs."

After an argument the tribe separated in two groups. The smaller group has contact with others but the larger group is isolated. The Brazil authorities are trying to prevent contact with them.
