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).
