Quechua: The Language of the Incas - Latino Heritage Month Event

Quechua is the major indigenous language spoken in the Americas. Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia are the countries where the speakers of this language are most numerous. However there are also Quechua speakers in Colombia, Brazil and Argentina. There are in total more than 8 million Quechua speakers.

In these countries Quechua and Spanish have been in contact for hundreds of years. As a result of this situation their linguistic and cultural reality are sui generis. Consequently, the knowledge of Quechua will help to better intercommunicate with the population of these societies.

Presented by Sixto Clodoaldo Soto, Instructor of Quechua, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Center of Latin American & Carribean Studies

Co-Sponsored by Department of Foreign Languages
