Barasana-Taiwano (Barasano-Taiwano)

"Barasana-Taiwano" is an alternate name for the Barasana language of Colombia. The two major dialects of this language are known as Barasana (or Hanera) and Taiwano (or Eduria), therefore the longer name "Barasana-Taiwano" is sometimes used, particularly in linguistics texts.
