The rather confusing use of terms requires some explanation. The river Pira-parana and its affluents are inhabited by a number of separate peoples, including the Barasana. The area covered by the Pira-parana river system forms the southwestern part of the Vaupes region, which overlaps from Colombia into Brazil. The other rivers of the Vaupes region are part of the Vaupes river system, whereas the Pira-parana flows into the Apaporis to the south (see map 1). The Tukanoan groups of the Vaupes region are related by common cultural patterns, by their use of Eastern Tukanoan languages and by their participation in an open-ended social system based on the exchange of women between exogamous patrilineal descent groups.

The other rivers of the Vaupes region are part of the Vaupes river system, whereas the Pira-parana flows into the Apaporis to the south (see map 1). The Tukanoan groups of the Vaupes region are related by common cultural patterns, by their use of Eastern Tukanoan languages and by their participation in an open-ended social system based on the exchange of women between exogamous patrilineal descent groups. These exogamous groups are the peoples such as the Barasana, Tatuyo, Desana etc. Generally speaking, each of these exogamous units has its own language, but, in the exceptional cases where language and descent boundaries do not coincide, there is enormous confusion in the use of these two criteria for distinguishing groups.
