Achuar Counting Worksheet

Like most Jivaroan languages, Achuar does not have many number words (really only four.) It is possible to count to high numbers in Achuar, but only by using long compound words combining the words for one through four with "hand" (uvej.) Today, most Achuar people use Spanish numerals to count higher than five.
