Chaná were one of the native nations of Uruguay.[1]

Their culture was semi-nomadic. After the arrival of Europeans and the introduction of cattle, they started using leather for dressing.[2]

Legacy[edit]

Their name was kept in a well-known local coffee brand, "Café El Chaná".

A street in Montevideo (Cordón) bears the name "Chaná".
