The heart of the collection is recordings, both audio and video, in a wide range of genres: narratives, chants, oratory, conversations, songs, and more. Many recordings are transcribed and translated into Spanish, English or Portuguese.
The archive also contains a wealth of language documentation materials: grammars, dictionaries, ethnographies, and field notes. The collection includes teaching materials for bilingual education and language revitalization programs.
We are committed to serving the indigenous people of Latin America and the scholars who study their languages. We are always interested in hearing from you. Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
