"Quirruba" was the name of a historical Amazonian band of Colombia. This tribal name is not in use today, as the Quirruba people
no longer exist as a distinct tribe. The Quirruba language is poorly documented but apparently belonged to the Arawakan language
family, and is considered by some linguists to have been a dialect of the Baniva del Guainia language. The Quirruba band also had
cultural and historical ties to the Achagua people, and it is believed that they may have merged into the Achagua tribe in the 18th century.
