Cabre (Cabere, Cávere) is an extinct Arawakan language of Colombia. Speakers lived along the Teviare and Zama rivers among speakers of Western Nawiki (Upper Amazonian) languages, but not enough is known to classify it well. Gilij (see Campbell) cited:

Maipure Güipunave Cávere (gloss)
yema dema shema 'tobacco'
yapa dapa shapa 'monte' (hill, bush)
