Candoshi Indian Language (Murato, Shapra)

Candoshi, also known as Murato, is an indigenous language of South America, spoken by 3000 people in Peru. Candoshi is usually considered to be a language isolate (unrelated to any other living language.) Some linguists have suggested a remote relationship to the Jivaroan or Arawakan language families, but the evidence for this is slight.
