Arawa Indian Language (Araua, Arauá)

Arawa is an extinct language of Brazil. Arawa has not been spoken since the 19th century and is poorly attested; it is primarily known today because the Arawan language family, of which Arawa was a member, is named after it. The tribal name was also spelled Arawá, Aruá, Arauá, Arua, or Araua, but the language was unrelated to the still-spoken Tupian language also known as Aruá.
