"Arabela-Andoa" is a name sometimes used to refer to the language spoken by the Andoa and Arabela tribes of Peru and Ecuador.
Some linguists consider the languages of these two tribes so closely related as to be dialects of a single language, hence the combined
nane. Other linguists consider them distinct languages and only use "Arabela-Andoa" to refer to their particular subgroup of the
Zaparoan language family.
Here are links to our webpages about the Arabela-Andoa tribes and languages:
