Etymology: The specific epithet krenakore honours the Krenakore Indians, a Jê-speaking nation. The Krenakore suffered severe onslaughts by Brazilian society and was reduced to one-third of its original population after contact in 1973 when the Cuiabá-Santarém road began to be built crossing their territory. Recently, after much struggle, the Krenakore was the first native nation in Brazil to be given indemnity by the government and regain the right to live in part of their original territory.
