Kariri was an indigenous language of Brazil, whose last speakers died in the 1960's. There were at least four Kariri dialects, which appear to have been quite distinct from each other and may have been separate languages: Kipea, Dzubukua, Kamuru, and Sapuya. A fifth language, known as Kariri-Xoco or Xukuru-Kariri, is sometimes considered to be another Kariri dialect. The Kariri languages have been identified with the Ge language family by some linguists, though others class them as a language isolate or as their own small Kariri language family. Kariri had VOS word order.
