"Chácobo" comes from a neighboring language. Their autonym is Nóʔciria, meaning "We who are truly ourselves." They are also known as the Pacaguara, Pacaguara de Ivon, or Pachuara people.
The Chácobo language is a Chákobo language belonging to the Bolivian Panoan languages, which are part of the greater Panoan language family. The language is taught in bilingual schools and written in the Latin script.
Chácobo traditionally were nomadic and fished, hunted, and gathered wild plants, with farming only playing a minor part in their lives. In 1845, there were an estimated 300 Chácobo. Their numbers lowered to 170 in 1970, but increased back to 300 by the 1980s.
