“Kagwahiv” is the self-denomination of a number of small groups in the region of the middle and upper Madeira River and central Rondônia that speak a language of the Tupí-Guaraní family and share features of social structure, notably a pair of patrilineal exogamous moieties named for contrasting bird species. Today the various tribes that call themselves Kagwahiv are known by separate names, many of them given by enemy groups. The northernmost is known as "Parintintin," possibly from a Mundurucú designation.
