The Cambeba (also known as the Omagua, Umana, Cambeba, and Kambeba) are an indigenous people in Brazil's Amazon valley. Fabulous stories about the wealth of the Cambebas led to several early expeditions into their country, the most famous of which were those of George of Spires in 1536, of Philipp von Hutten in 1541 and of Pedro de Ursua in 1560. In 1645, Jesuits began work. In 1687, Father Fritz, apostle of the Omaguas, established some forty mission villages.

They speak the Omagua language.
