Siatami is a BriBri indian term, formed by the combination of two words. " Sia " which means sacred, prediction or healing stones, and Tami, which means "owner". Therefore Siatami was within the Bri Bri social structure, the name given to the person in charge of keeping the sacred medical stones, The Bri Bris are a brave ethnical group, who still live in the Talamanca`s Mountain region, where some Families still live scattered close to the rivers. Due to their braveness and courage they became know as " The Hards".

Bri Bri, comes form the word "Darere" , which means hard in the aboriginal Language. Generation through generation, The Bri Bris, have kept their fascinating world through oral tradition. This has been the main resource to trasmit their history. Religion, Mithology, history and Medicine, are all as important for the Bri Bri culture, as their social estructure, with a clearly defined hierarchy where, the "usekol" or main priest was the mayor authority, followed by the Biliki or mediator between the people and the priest. The Bulu "chief or King", the "Tsokolpas" or singers and others relevant figures in the society have already dissapeard. To the present day, both the Siatami and AWA or doctor are still present.
