Student in Peru makes history by writing thesis in the Incas’ language, Quechua.
Scholars say it is the first time in the university’s 468-year history that a student has written and defended a thesis (answering questions from examiners) entirely in the native language – even though it is the most widely spoken indigenous tongue in South America, used by about 8 million people, half of them in Peru.
@puertorico Brave 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
@puertorico I had read about this earlier today but did not realize that Quechua is a living language still in use - and so wide-spread!
@jeanneal yeah! its heartening to know it wasn't completely stamped out despite the spaniard's best efforts!
Originally a small latinx / chicanx community, now open to all BIPOC! Open to anyone from the culture cousins
