The 35 native languages would be dialects.
In Papua New Guinea there are 850 native dialects, the
official languages are English, Tok Pisen and Motu (Papuan side).
I worked for 6 years in the then Territory of PNG in the 1960's before
the country gained independence.
For the interested Texan, "DJ", I am now retired.
And I have been also to the state of Texas, USA.

How confusing. But all those languages can't be official?

I don't know much about Bolivia, but there are quite a few people moving to and fro Brazil in this area. The young kids pick up Portugese. It's neat to hear them chat with each other.
