Aguano people

Aguano people

The Aguano (also Awano, Ahuano, Uguano, Aguanu, Santa Crucino) are a people of Peru, consisting of 40 families. They inhabit the Lower Huallaga and upper Samiria rivers, and the right bank tributary of the Marañon River. [ Ethnologue report for language code:aga ] ]


[see also ahuano ecuador]

The Aguano spoke an extinct unclassified language. It is not listed in Kaufman (1994). According to Ruhlen, this language is the same as Chamicuro (1987, personal communication). Chamicuro speakers say that the Aguano language was not the same as theirs, but the rather that Aguano spoke Quechua (Wise 1987, personal communication).
