Bookkeeping: Yarí

This entry has been retired and is featured here only for bookkeeping purposes. Either the entry has been replaced with one or more more accurate entries or it has been retired because it was based on a misunderstanding to begin with.

E16/E17/E18 lists an unclassified language Yarí [yri] on the Yarí river. The given map location coincides with the Chiribiquete national park which is traditionally Carijona [cbd] territory ( Juan Friede 1948 ). Uncontacted peoples have been sighted in this area in the past ( Pierre Grenand and Françoise Grenand 1994 ), including a Murui Huitoto [huu] group who were there until 1959. Presently, no uncontacted peoples are known to inhabit the area ( Vincent Brackelaire and Gilberto Azanha 2006 , Roberto Franco 2002 ) and if there were, these would be Murui Witoto [huu] or Carijona [cbd]-speaking ( Roberto Franco 2002 ) -- languages which already have entries in E16/E17/E18. I wish to thank Frank Seifart for researching this matter and for access to Roberto Franco 2002 's thorough historical account. See also: Carijona [cbd], Murui Huitoto [huu].
