Uru–Chipaya is an indigenous language family of Bolivia. The speakers 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.
