Curripaco Indian Language (Kurripako)

Curripaco is an Arawakan language of South America, spoken by 3500 people in Colombia, Brazil and Venezuela. Curripaco is very closely related to the Brazilian language known as "Baniua do Içana" or "Baniwa do Isana," and some people consider the two to be dialects of a single language.
