Cofan (A'ingae, Cofán)

Cofan (called "A'ingae" by its own speakers) is an indigenous language of South America. Some linguists consider Cofan to be a member of the Chibchan language family, while others consider it to be a language isolate unrelated to any other known language. Cofan is spoken by some 1500 people in the Ecuadorian and Columbian rainforests.
