Bolivia: Revaluation of the Yuracaré Language

The language of the Yurakaré culture is a language that has survived to this day. However, contact with the Castilian language has been an influence on the speakers, the language, and culture. Currently the Yurakaré language is considered to be endangered. Thus, we propose to strengthen the Yurakaré identity and oral tradition through the spread of its language with young people exploring new technologies that recently reached the community.

  • Hola Ida Peñaranda,

    Buena idea de entrenar a los jóvenes. Nosotros un grupo de jóvenes Aymaras http://www.jaqi-aru.org también nos hemos empoderado de la tecnología y de nuestra lengua Aymara.

    continuen sin desistir, adelante!
