The village of Tikawara was recently founded by a small Huana tribe. Though the location has limited access to food, it is close to legendary Engwithan ruins known to the Huana as Poko Kohara. The tribe hopes to catch a break in the new location, as their old sites were constantly ravaged by pirates, slavers, and Rauataian scouts. The limited food supply is a major problem, offset by the presence of Vailian Trading Company trade routes in close proximity. It currently has 64 inhabitants (99% island aumaua and 1% mountain dwarf), with no major exports or imports. It's governed by the usual Huana tribal caste system and a ranga, with Ondra and Hylea worship most common.
During the colonization period, Tikawara was the site of the infamous "bear incident", when a total of ten colonists were torn apart by local bears.

- Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire encyclopedia: "Bears are widely distributed across the Deadfire Archipelago. They favor dens dug into hillsides where their preferred foods - murkberries, yalōa nuts, and ants - are plentiful. Slightly smaller than their Eastern Reach cousins, Deadfire bears are nonetheless vicious opponents when goaded to violence.
In the early years of Deadfire colonization, colonists were occasionally killed in bear attacks. The Tikawara bear incident is particularly infamous. Seven colonists died in the first attack, then three more the following night when the bear returned during a funeral vigil.
On occasion, Deadfire bears have been known to fall prey to tigers, adult females and their cubs being especially vulnerable. This is attributed in part to their inability to climb trees, unlike their counterparts across the sea."
