  1. Iquito Language

    Iquito is a highly endangered Zaparoan language of Peru. Iquito is one of 3 surviving Zaparoan languages; the other two being Záparo, with 1-3 speakers, and Arabela with about 75 speakers. The other four Zaparoan languages, Andoa, Omurano, Aushiri, and Cahuarano. Of the ethnic Iquito population of 500, as of 2006, there are 25 fluent or native speakers, all of whom are over 55 years old, and about 25 partial or passive speakers, all of whom are over the age of 25. Iquito is spoken in the Loreto Province, the regions of the Pintoyacu, Nanay, and Chambira rivers, and the villages of San Antonia and Atalaya. Iquito is also known by the names of Iquita, Ikito, Amacacore, Hamacore, Quiturran, and Puca-Uma, though Iquito is the most common title. It is used as an official language of Peru, though the few speakers are older adults, the youngest being 52 as of 2002. The main dialect of Iquito is Pintuyacu. In the Iquito population, there is a negative attitude towards the language and thus there is mostly use of Spanish, one of the major languages of Peru. This is partially due to centuries of pressure to assimilate into Spanish-speaking culture. As a second language, the literacy rate is about 75%. The population is Christian; the Bible was translated in 1963. The people cultivate yucca, are fishermen and hunters, rubber gatherers, and traders.
