Huachipaeri Language (Wachipairi)

Huachipaeri is a Harakmbet language of South America.
Huachipaeri is spoken by 200 people in Peru. There are four Huachipaeri dialects, known as Huachipaeri, Arasaeri, Sapiteri, and Toyeri. Huachipaeri is closely related to the Amarakaeri language, and some linguists consider them to be dialects of the same language as well. The word order is verb-final (normally SOV.)
