Thus, the Kokama­Kokamillas have then a long history of contact and migration, but above all of resistance to dominance and oppression. 4.  The history they have gone through explains this situation. Nowadays, the language is no longer transmitted to children, and in many cases, the surviving speakers have no­one with whom they can use the language on a daily basis. 6) are also discussed in this chapter.
