Jirajaran Language Family (Hiraharan)

The Jirajaran or Jirajara languages were spoken in western Venezuela. They bear a slight resemblance to the larger Chibchan language family, and may have been distantly related to them. None are still spoken today, as the last speakers died in the early 1900's.
