Lule Indian Language (Lule-Lule)

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.
