    • Historical information: Andoa (also: Katsakáti) is a language of the Zaparoan family. Its sister languages include Arabela [arl], Iquito [iqu] and Záparo [zro] (also: Zápara, Sápara). The entire Zaparoan family is critically endangered: according to the 'Iquito-English Dictionary' (Michael et al. 2019 and sources therein) as of 2011, Arabela had about 30 remaining speakers; as of 2020, Iquito had fewer than 10 remaining fluent native speakers; as of 2014, Záparo had only a few rememberers; and by 2009 Andoa had already fallen silent. Peeke (1959) indicates that by 1951 Andoa had already been replaced by a variety of Kichwa as the language of daily use.
      Juan Mucushua, María Sandi, and all of the other inheritors of Andoa/Katsakáti who participated in the field research activities associated with this collection lived at that time in the community of Andoas Viejo, located on the Pastaza River roughly 27 miles from the Peru/Ecuador border and 432 miles from Iquitos (the capital of Loreto).
      The field research that resulted in this collection was carried out in 2009 by a team of four researchers: Christine Beier (CMB), Lev Michael (LDM), Marta Piqueras-Brunet (MPB), and Ramón Escamilla (RME). The project was designed by CMB and LDM with two goals: linguistic documentation and language revalorization. These goals were operationalized based on local conditions as assessed upon arrival in Andoas Viejo in June 2009. The first goal was met by recording (bundles 001-005) and analyzing (bundle 008) as much linguistic information as we could during a week-long intensive fieldwork period in Andoas Viejo. The second goal was made tangible by returning the results of our field research in printed form (bundle 007) to participants and other community members after five additional days of work in the closest major town, San Lorenzo.
