Cultural Survival has partnered with Radio Riverside in Upington, South Africa to produce a digital dictionary of over a thousand words with Ouma Katrina Esau.

De acuerdo con la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU), en la actualidad en el mundo se hablan cerca de 7 mil idiomas y pese a que los Pueblos Indígenas constituyen menos del 6% de la población mundial, ellos hablan mas de 4000 idiomas.

La ONU reconoce la importancia de las lenguas Indígenas para la cohesión y la inclusión social, los derechos culturales, la salud y la justicia, por lo que proclamó el período entre 2022 y 2032 como el Decenio Internacional de las Lenguas Indígenas.

En la cultura occidental se ha usado el término LGBTIQ+ para nombrar la diversidad en cuanto a identidad de género y orientación sexual; sin embargo, en los Pueblos Indígenas, ¿cómo nombramos esta diversidad? Con el fin de reflexionar sobre los muxes, considerados por los pueblos zapotecos de la Costa de Oaxaca, en México, como el tercer género, en Cultural Survival recientemente entrevistamos a Karla Rey, presidenta y fundadora de “Verbena Muxe”.

Indigenous Peoples have known how to live on and take care of the land since times immemorial. We know that wherever you find cultural diversity, you will be sure to find biological diversity, in fact globally there are overlaps of areas rich in biodiversity with areas of cultural and linguistic diversity. These are the areas managed by Indigenous Peoples.
