cocaví

cocaví - a bag lunch or snack that you bring with you somewhere. It's a quechua word.

Y chicos, llevan cocaví, ya que no hay dónde comer por allí.


And kids, bring a bag lunch, since there's nowhere to eat there.

Chilensis

And here's why I thought it was a mapuche term.

the word ain't "kokabi" but "COCAVÍ"...that's why you couldn't spell it...meaning is right

Thanks Cris. I'll change the spelling.

I found a link, and turns out it's not a mapuche word, but a quechua word.
