This article has been merged and repointed to the main article: Pirahã people

This page has similar content and aim as Pirahã. I believe Pirahã (see paper linked from there) is the prefered name for the tribe, not Piraha. I can't find anything saying that exactly, but more sites, including SIL website, (Archive of) U. Pittsburg site and ISA site on Pirahã, appear to use Pirahã instead of Piraha. -- Mairi 22:00, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Agreed, I wasn't aware there was already an article when I worked on this last week. --Zerbey 02:04, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Someone has added yet another redundant article Piraha, from which I'm merging material into Pirahã. I suspect the a-tilde is causing people trouble when searching. --Jim Henry 20:47, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)

The "follow no religous beliefs" seems to be an oversimplification or outright falsehood, based on Everett's article, which mentions in passing several times the Pirahã's belief in a spirit world and particular spirits. Can anyone verify further details? --Jim Henry 20:58, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Would it be better to say they have no organised religion? --Zerbey 21:00, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)
