Canichana Indian Language

Canichana is an indigenous language once spoken in Bolivia. Most linguists consider Canichana a language isolate, although some have suggested it may be distantly linked to the Tucanoan languages.
The language is no longer spoken, but there are still some Canichana elders who remember some of the language.
