Cofán is spoken in Napo Province in north east Ecuador and in southern Colombia by about 1,000 people. The relationship of Cofán to other languages is uncertain: some linguists believe it to be related to the Chibchan languages, though this may be a result to borrowed vocabulary.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
