INDIGENOUS RAISE THEIR VOICES

For centuries, the indigenous people and their culture have been discriminated in Peru. This suppression hast lasted until today, above all in the educational system and in the media. Here the radio project Pukllasunchis intervenes. Together with schools and women’s groups it produces bilingual radio programs in Quechua and Spanish. By implementing the radio program in class, children are taught in an interactive and creative way and reflect the indigenous world view. The radio broadcasts the bilingual programs created by the children and the women’s groups. Indigenous knowledge and Quechua find thereby their place in the media.
