Iquito linguistics

I recently needed to share some resources on Iquito, a Peruvian Zaparoan language that some colleagues and I have worked with, and I realized that the materials that we have produced on this language are scattered across the web, and that there is really no single place to send anyone to download the digital materials available on this language.  As a stopgap measure, this post lists major publications produced by participants in the Iquito Language Documentation Project, by year, with download links.
