Our Father  / Karima, najamutuata jakutai

Karima, najamutuata jakutai,
Jiwai yatomanetekunarai.
Jirujuna rujanu rijana.
Najamutuata jiaobojona eku abaya.
Raina eku monukajase jiaobojona eku abakunarai.
Kanajoro ama saba jakutai taisi kamoau.
Kaisiko asiraja nonajakutai taisi kuare barinaka kaobojona bereaoko.
Taisi monuka kaobojona asirajasi kuare barinaka bere.
Kayakara minaka jau.
Tiarone asiraja arotuma amojekumo kejeronu.
Iji are Airamo tane rujakitane ja.
Iji are jijara taeraja.
Iji are Airamowitu.

The word "Warao", according to the historian Alvaro A.
García Castro, means: "Inhabitant of the Marismas"
(Waha: marsh, flooding area, low shore. Arao: people, inhabitant).
