Lule Indian Language
Lule is an indigenous language of South America.
Some linguists consider Lule to be a language isolate unrelated to any other living language,
but other linguists have linked it with another Argentinian language,
Vilela, into a small
Lule-Vilela language family.
Lule is a highly endangered language, still spoken today by only a handful of elders in Argentina.
