In this present paper, the etymological composition of Kallawaya, a mixed and secret language of Bolivia, will be discussed. I will argue that the lexicon of Kallawaya is more heterogeneous than has been assumed so far. In particular, the role of the allegedly main lexifier language Pukina will be critically re-assessed and I will suggest that only a minor part of the Kallawaya lexicon can be related to Pukina. The issues of secrecy and intentional borrowing will also be addressed.
