Chono is an extinct group of people who were indigenous to Chiloe Island, Los Lagos, Chile. They used nets and spears to gather food from the sea, but supplemented their catch with potatoes and other growths from small gardens. The dwelling places consisted of caves or leather structures.

The Chono became extinct during the 18th century with the last survivor going missing in 1875.
