Teribe (Naso)

Teribe is a Chibchan language spoken mainly in northwestern Panama, especially in Changuinola city and along the Teribe and Changuinola rivers in the province of Bocas del Toro. In 2007 about 3,300 people spoke Terbie in Panama. There also used to be Teribe speakers in Térraba, a town in the neighbouring Puntarenas province of Costa Rica, and the Teribe people there are making efforts to revive their language and culture.

Teribe is also known as Nortenyo, Quequexque, Terraba, Tiribi or Tirribi. In Costa Rica the language is known as Térraba or Brorán. The name Teribe is a Spanish version of tjer di ("river of the Grandmother"), the native name for the Teribe river. The Grandmother was the spirit who protected the area. The native name for the language, Naso, means "native", and comes from na (here) and so/sogo (owner), and originally meant something like "owners of this place".
