Hey Makuucrocodile44! Thank you for the comment! As for your two suggestions, I am grateful. The Muisca people near Bogota were a loose confederation of peoples. And their Chibhca roots can be traced within other ethnic and tribal groups. Many can be confused as they were one of "The Big Four" of Central and South American Natives. As for the Tairona, I can add them. Thank you for making me aware!

Sure! Got all these comments today. Embera and Tayrona will work within the hour.

and shouldn't we call them "peoples" or "nations" rather than "tribes"?

Hello again Iris! The terminology for South American natives is rarely ever specified, thusly not agreed upon. I can add that into the description if needs be.

also maybe add the Wayuu, the Nasa/Paez, the Guambiano/Misak, the Kogi, the Arhuacos, the Awa/Kwaiker, Kuna/Guna/Tule... and that's just for Colombia.

Sure! That's a lot of suggestions, seems like you have some more too. If you could provide some sources along with some suggestions for regional affiliations I would be happy to look into those.
