The tribes of the area were always nomadic, and more than one l dominated different parts of what is now Santa Cruz. Although it is believed that the Chane were the majority.

Remains of ceramics and weapons from the era have been found in the area, leading researchers to believe that they had established settlements in the area. Among the few known facts about these tribes, according to accounts from the first Europeans who came into contact with the Chane, is that they had a formal leader, a chief, named Grigotá for several years.
