Fun Fact[edit | edit source]
Headhunting in the Amazon
Several tribes of the Jivaroan group, including the Shuar in Eastern Ecuador and Northern Peru, along the rivers Chinchipe, Bobonaza, Morona, Upano, and Pastaza, main tributaries of the Amazon, practiced headhunting for trophies. The heads were shrunk and were known locally as Tzan-Tzas. The people believed that the head housed the soul of the person killed.
