Promoucaes, Promaucaes, Promaucas or Purumaucas (Quechua: puruma auca: wild people); were a pre-Columbian Mapuche tribe that lived in Chile, from the south of the River of Maipo in Santiago, Chile and the River of Itata, (tribes at the north were called Quillotanes[1] and Mapochoes by the Spanish). They were speakers of Mapudungun like the Moluche and Picunche tribes.
