The Chácobos, members of the Panoan language family of Amazonian Indians, remain as one of the least-known groups of native peoples in the area. In Bolivia there are 260 members of this tribe, their principal village located in Alto Ivón, 70 miles south of Riberalta. The surrounding forest is of great importance to the Chácobos, providing food, fuel, shelter, medicine, poisons, and other useful products. In a one-hectare site near their main village, 82% of the species and 95% of the individual trees are utilized.
