The Uaimiris-Atroari or Waimiri-Atroari are an indigenous group inhabiting the southeastern part of the Brazilian state of Roraima and northeastern Amazonas, specifically the area Waimiri-Atroari. They call themselves Kinja people.
During the 19th century, they were known as the Crichanás, when expansionary segments of surrounding Brazilian people made first contact with them.
