"Bora-Miranya" is an alternate name for the Bora language of Brazil, Peru and Colombia. This name indicates the two major dialects of the Bora language: Miranya (also spelled Miraña) and Bora proper. "Bora-Miranya" is a term that is usually used by linguists, not by the people themselves (who typically call their language either Bora or Miranya, but not both.)
