Tupí Rosary Prayers
This language is now extinct, but was once spoken throughout  Brazil.  The first written recordings of this language were made by Jesuits in 1575 and onward.  Most colonists coming to Brazil would learn Tupí so they could communicate with the Indians and other early colonists who spoke it.  In 1759, the Jesuits were expelled from Brazil by the Prime Minister of Portugal and the language began to fall out of use rapidly as many new colonists, who continued to speak Portuguese, were immigrating due to the discovery of diamonds, gold and gems in the Interior of Brazil. This language was spoken for another century, yet its influence on the language continues to this day.

See also The Work of God's Children page for the illustrated version of prayers in this language.
