Language documentation and revival have gained impetus within the last century. In this context, the recovery process of Andwa is of special importance as it deals with an extinct language. The particular methodology required for its reclamation represents new challenges in the fields of research and education. The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of the history of the Andwa people and language in Ecuador as well as of the process of documentation leading to its reintroduction in education and community spaces.
Keywords: Andwa language, documentation, revitalization, education, re-language reclamation, linguistic heritage.
