Vilela Indian Language

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