Latin American Studies | Intermediate Quechua: Inga Language and Culture
L426 | 26508 | Tandioy, F.


Professor Francisco Tandioy, member of the Ingano Indigenous
Community in Southwest Columbia will be teaching this intermediate
class in Inga Language and Culture.

Inga is the northern-most dialect of the Quechua language family,
spoken by around 12 million people in the Andean REpublics of South
America, an area extending from southern Columbia 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.
