Uru-Chipaya languages

Uru-Chipaya, also known as Chipaya-Uru is an indigenous language family of Bolivia consisting of two closely related languages. It has no known relatives though connections have been proposed to Arawakan or Mayan languages. Chipaya has over 1000 speakers and sees vigorous use in the native community, while only 2 speakers of Uru remained as of 2000 and it is likely to become extinct in the near future.
