Pauserna Language (Guarasuawe)

Language: Pauserna, also known as Guarasuawe, was a Tupi-Guarani language of South America, once spoken in eastern Bolivia. It was closely related to Guarayu, which is still spoken in this region. Although the Pauserna language is no longer spoken in the community, it still has the status of one of Bolivia's official languages due to its cultural and historical importance.
