Uru–Chipaya is an indigenous language family of Bolivia. They were originally fishermen on the shores of Lake Titicaca, Lake Poopo, and the Desaguadero River that connects them. Chipaya has over a thousand speakers and sees vigorous use in the native community, while only one fluent speaker of Iru Itu remained as of 2007[update] and it is likely to become extinct in the near future. The other Uru languages or dialects are all extinct.
