Ashéninka (Ashéninga, Ashénika) is an indigenous American language of the Arawakan family spoken in Perú. All but a few of the 50,000 people in the ethnic group are fluent. Ashéninka is a dialect cluster of five partially mutually intelligible varieties:
- Pajonal Ashéninka, South Ucayali Ashéninka, Pichis Ashéninka, Ucayali-Yurúa Ashéninka, Perené Ashéninka,
which are named for the region or river along which their speakers live.
Ashéninka is a locally official language in Perú, as are all native Peruvian languages. It and its relatives are also known by the largely pejorative term Campa.
