Sustaining Indigenous Languages in Southeastern Peru.
Aikman, Sheila
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v2 n3 p198-213 1999
Examines Muhlhausler's thesis that to understand the decline of small languages, one must comprehend ecological factors comprising each language's support system. Discusses the Harakmbut peoples of southeastern Peru, examining their concept of territory, which provides context for understanding environments that support Harakmbut and Spanish. Considers the role of intercultural bilingual education in the context of increasing Spanish and decreasing Harakmbut. (SM)
