The Tiriyó (also known as Trio) are a Amerindian ethnic group native to parts of northern Brazil and Suriname. In 2005, there were approximately 2,000 Tiriyó in the two countries. They live in several major villages and a number of minor villages in the border zone between Brazil and Suriname. They speak the Tiriyó language, a member of the Cariban language family and refer to themselves as tarëno, etymologically 'people from here' or 'local people'.
About 30% are Christians, while 70% follow indigenous religions.
