RESCATANDO EL IDIOMA BORA


Wahcayu, el curaca de la comunidad indigena Pucaurquillo Bora, de la cuenca del rio Ampiyacu en Loreto, Perú, se encuentra desconcertado porque los niños ya no hablan el idioma de los ancestros y paulatinamente abandonan la maloca, el principal espacio para compartir, dialogar y reproducir la cultura. La comunidad toma acuerdos para fortalecer su cultura.
