An Entity of Type: Thing, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

The Maina or Meena are a group of indigenous peoples living along the north bank of the Marañón River in South America. They spoke varieties of the Omurano language. The Maina were among the first tribes of the upper Amazon region to have been evangelized by the Catholic Church, leading to the naming of several jurisdictions and areas after the tribe, including the province of Mainas, which included the larger part of the present Ecuador and northern Peru, east of the main Cordillera, including the basins of the Huallaga and Ucayali.

  • Els Maina o Meena són un grup de pobles indígenes que viuen al llarg de la riba nord del riu Marañón a Amèrica del Sud. Parlaven diverses varietats d'omurano. Els Maina van ser una de les primeres tribus de la regió superior de l'Amazones que van ser evangelitzades per l'Església Catòlica, la qual cosa va portar a nomenar diverses jurisdiccions i àrees després de la tribu, inclosa la província de Mainas, que incloïa la major part de l'actual Equador i el nord del Perú, a l'est de la Cordillera principal, incloses les conques del Huallaga i Ucayali. Els Maina eren una de les moltes cultures antigues que jugaven amb pilotes de goma com a joguines. L'anomenaven "caucho" que combinava les paraules "caa" (fusta) i "ochu" (plorar), feta per extracció de la saba d'un arbre que deien "heve" i deixant-la assecar en un sòlid jugable que avui anomenem goma.

The Maina were one of many older cultures to play with rubber balls as toys. They called it "caucho" which combined the words "caa" (wood) and "ochu" (to cry), made by extracting the sap from a tree they called "heve" and letting it dry into a playable solid that we today call rubber.
