Manuel Córdova-Rios (November 22, 1887 – November 22, 1978) was a vegetalista ( herbalist ) of the upper Amazon , and the subject of several popular books.

The young mestizo joined a company that left Iquitos for the surrounding Amazon forest to cut rubber trees. He was apparently captured by a native tribe, among whom he then lived for seven years. The elderly chief taught him in intensive private sessions traditional knowledge, e.g., about medicinal plants of the jungle, and about leadership. From the tribe he learned hunting skills and acquired the name Ino Moxo (black jaguar). The chief also led group sessions using ayahuasca . After the chief's death, Córdova gave youthful leadership to the tribe for some years.

Then he returned to Peruvian life, raising a family. Eventually he became well known in the Amazon region for his success as a curandero (healer), by his skill in using the chief's herbal teachings.
