Chimane (or Tsimane') is an indigenous South American language spoken by around 5000 people in Bolivia. The Chimane live by hunting, gathering and practising slash-and-burn agriculture. In some respects, Chimane is reminiscent of other Andean and Amazonian languages. For example, the portmanteaux pronominal agreement suffixes are not dissimilar to those found in Quechua and Aymara. Other features of the language, for example the elaborate gender agreement system, are very rare in the macro-region. The most significant works on Chimane are a dictionary and pedagogical grammar by Wayne Gill and a descriptive grammar of Covendo Mosetén (a closely related dialect) by Jeanette Sakel. The first documentation of the language is currently being initiated by Sandy Ritchie as part of his doctoral research. Serialising Chimane is an attempt to publicise and promote the language. Recordings made during the documentation project will be continually added along with annotations such as transcriptions and translations. A secondary aim is to demonstrate that sharing and promoting recordings and annotation of a language in an accessible format will help demonstrate to a wider audience the value and importance of minority and endangered languages and the unique cultures they encode.
