Description:This collection contains materials describing Oro Win (ISO-639: orw), a Chapacuran language spoken by the Oro Win (or Oro Towati') people who live near the Pacaás Novos River. The Oro Win people were once heavily oppressed and at one point lived with the Wari', which may explain some shared features between Oro Win and the Wari' language. The Oro Win population totalled 73 people in 2010, and the language has been subject to revitalization projects in the form of associations and school classes taught in Oro Win. It is as of yet underdescribed. This collection contains language materials recorded with six elders living in the Oro Win communities. There are audio and video recordings of Oro Win speech from a variety of discourse genres, which have been used to help develop practical language materials with the community.
