For the languages known as Ashaninka, see Ashaninka language or Ajyininka Apurucayali (also sometimes called Ashaninka).
The Ashaninka or Ashaninca are an indigenous people living in the rainforests of Peru and in the State of Acre Brazil.
The Ashaninka are estimated between 25,000 and 45,000. Only a few hundred of these live on the Brazilian side of the border. That means that among the 300,000 native people from 65 different ethnic groups in the Peruvian Amazon, the Ashaninka are the largest indigenous group.
