Curinquean is an unknown peoples reputedly resident around the Mato Grosso region of Brazil, referenced by the Portuguese Jesuit priest Simão de Vasconcelos (1597-1671) in his 1668 book Notícias Necessárias e Curiosas da Cousas do Brasil, in which he briefly mentioned them to be a "nation of gigantic men who are sixteen feet tall, much adorned with gold on their heads and noses, to which all others pay their respects."[1] The name is more commonly used today to describe regional crypto-hominids that are accused of slaughtering local ranchers' cattle, wrenching the tongues out but abandoning the remainder of the carcass.
