SOF Fellow Renzo Aroni launched Kuskalla, a new podcast featuring conversations on Quechua language and Andean knowledge, culture, arts, and politics. Listen here.
Kuskalla: Juntos-Together is a tri-lingual podcast (Quechua-Spanish-English) brought to you by Kuskalla Abya Yala, a diasporic community organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Andean worldviews and Indigenous languages, such as Quechua, the most spoken Indigenous language in the Americas, with about 8 to 10 million speakers, some living in the diaspora. Your hosts, Yojana Miraya Oscco (@OsccoMiraya) and Renzo Aroni Sulca (@renzoaronis) are Quechua scholars-activists who bring academic and non-academic conversations and stories on Quechua and Andean knowledge, culture, and politics. We aim to build a global Indigenous Quechua solidarity network together among Quechua and non-Quechua speakers and between different generations of Indigenous brothers and sisters of the North and South to resist the multiple legacies of colonialism and defend Indigenous peoples, thoughts and movements and their struggles for decolonization, self-determination, and sovereignty.
