Not Your Usual Tour: Amazonian Languages

January 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC presents a tour of the languages of Amazonia on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 7pm.

Explore the linguistic diversity of the region and learn more about the past and current challenges to its preservation. MOA will examine current documentation and revitalization efforts of Amazonian languages, which colonization, slavery, resource exploitation and assimilationist policies have gravely endangered, in some instances to a point of no return.

Free with museum admission. For more information, visit moa.ubc.ca/portfolio_page/not-your-usual-tour-amazonian-languages/
