stock, inhabiting the forests of the upper Ucayali basin,
east of Cuzco, on the eastern side of the Andes, south Peru.
The Antis, who gave their name to the eastern province of
Antisuyu, have always been notorious for ferocity and cannibalism.
They are of fine physique and generally good-looking.
Their dress is a robe with holes for the head and arms. Their
long hair hangs down over the shoulders, and round their necks
a toucan beak or a bunch of feathers is worn as an ornament.
