Latin American Studies | Quechua: Inga Language and Culture
L525 | 18581 | F. Tandioy
Professor Francisco Tandioy, professor and member of the Inga
Indigenous Community in southwestern Colombia, will teach L425/525,
an introductory class in Inga Language and Culture. Inga is the
northernmost dialect of the Quechua language family, spoken by
perhaps 15 million people in the Andean Republics of South America,
from southern Colombia to northern Argentina. Learning Inga, also
known as RUNA SIMI (meaning “the mouth or tongue of human beings”)
opens a gateway into the many wonders of indigenous cultures in the
Andes. Contact the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
for more details.
