|PeopleGroup*||In 1662 the Great Chariguriquas, were a group described by Van Riebeeck as a numerous people and rich in cattle Saladanha Bay.2|
|Notes||In 1657 Great Chariguriquas and Little Chariguriquas were distinct peoples who appear to have some connection to each other. At times they are clearly identified in the record as Little or Great, on other occasions there is simply a reference to Chariguriquas or one of the variant names, and so it is not clear which of the two are being referred to.3|
