Shipibo is not currently one of the languages that IMDb covers:
http://www.imdb.com/language/

According to Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shipibo_language
Shipibo (also Shipibo-Conibo, Shipibo-Konibo) is a Panoan language spoken in Peru and Brazil by approximately 26,000 speakers. Shipibo is an official language of Peru.
There are at least two films on IMDb in which Shipibo is used.
I'm Still (2013) "Sigo siendo" (original title)
The summary says: "A trip through the diversity of black and native Peruvian music."

2014 documentary "Icaros".   The summary says:  "Icaros explores the spiritual universe of the Shipibo indigenous people ...."  On IMDb the film's language is currently listed as "Aboriginal".

For additional background, please reference these two threads:

The original request by G.S. Reis (the last link in Dan's post above) dates back to May 2014, and the other discussion in January 2015 led Dan to post this Idea thread.

Can we get a rough estimate from staff as to how many more years we may have to wait for the requested language to be added to the database?

I see the two films in the OP still haven't got this language listed and the language also can't be selected in the language drop-down menu, so I figured a bump might be a good idea.
