Andean Quechua Language and Culture I:
Professor Francisco Tandioy, member of the Ingano Indigenous
Community in southwestern Colombia, will be teaching this
introductory class in Inga Language and Culture. Inga is the
northernmost dialect of the Quechua language family, spoken by
around 13 million people in the Andean Republics of South America,
an area extending 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 & Caribbean Studies for more details.
