Mozetena Indians

A group of some half dozen tribes constituting a distinct linguistic stock upon the headwaters of the Beni river, Department of Beni, in northwestern Bolivia. Among their peculiar customs is the couvade. In the early part of the eighteenth century, through the efforts of the Jesuits, a part of them were Christianized. They now live in three mission towns — Muchanes (founded 1725), Santa Ana, and Magdalena, all on the Beni river, near the confluence of the Mapisi.
