Baniwa (Baniva), or Karu, is an Arawakan language spoken in Colombia, Venezuela, and Amazonas, Brazil. Aikhenvald (1999) considers the three main varieties to be dialects; Kaufman (1994) considers them to be distinct languages, in a group he calls Karu. They are: Baniwa of Içana (Baniua do Içana) Curripaco (Kurripako, Ipeka-Tapuia-Curripako) Katapolítani-Moriwene-Mapanai (Catapolitani, Kadaupuritana) Various (sub)dialects of all three are called Tapuya. All are spoken by the Baniwa people. Baniwa has an active–stative syntax.
