Bilingual Intercultural Education and Indigenous Education

This group aims to explore the advantages and obstacles of bilingualism and multiculturalism in the Americas. More specifically, we would like to read your comments and ideas on how bilingualism such as, in the case of indigenous languages, affects social inclusion, the preservation of indigenous cultures, and the assurance of the sustainability of endangered languages. This group also aims to identify and analyze existing policies on bilingual education in the region.

We invite all teachers involved in bilingual education and especially those working with indigenous communities.

Education is the best way to learn about your own and other cultures, expand your worldview and make lasting networks and improve your skills with practice

In the Antillean Caribbean I do not view language as conflict between native and non native people as we have four different languages among the islands. The issue in these islands are ideologies of the North and countries that consider themselves superior because of their size. We can view all countries through this scope and see it is the people because when people share the same values their languages do not hinder progress.

Inequalities reflect lack of knowledge about our own identity and people. The lack of language contact brings miscommunication, conflic and confusion.  We need to educate our people, children in schools, make them feel proud of our differences and similarities. In my country we have a high percentage of  native population with richness in customs, culture, languages and land. The actual government has issued policies to respect their lands, to help them improve their academic level and have their intercultural schools for the importance to acquire Spanish as a second language and Kichwa as first.

Me parece excelente que tratemos estos temas pues así enriquecemos nuestras experiencias y ayudamos a disminuir cada día la discriminación y la exclusión de pueblos hermanos. En Honduras con el Proyecto EducAcción se está  desarrollando el Diplomado en Educación Intercultural Bilingüe para Directores Municipales de Educación, con el objetivo de sensibilizar hacia la problamática y desarrollar capacidades para impulsar la educación intercultural.

el idioma refleja la cultura de los que lo hablan, por eso la importancia de conocer otra lengua, nos acerca a otra forma de pensar y ver el mundo
