The Quetzali tribe is one of the 15 current tribes, released in the "New World" update. They appear to be based of Mesoamerican civilizations, such as the Aztecs, Olmecs, Mayans and Toltecs. Their name resembles that of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl.

In-game description:

"The Quetzali tribe worship the bird gods of the red soil and live in harmony with the natural symmetry of their cubistic jungles. They are commonly seen riding giant flightless birds."
