Kagwahiva (Kawahíb, Kagwahibm) is a Tupi–Guarani dialect cluster of Brazil. The major variety is Tenharim (Tenharem, Tenharin).

The Tenharim, Parintintín, Amondawa, Uru-eu-wau-wau, Júma, and Karipuná[3] peoples all call themselves Kavahiva. Their speech is all very similar, and also similar with other languages now extinct.
