On Friday and Saturday, November 18-19, in Santiago, Chile the Red por los Derechos Educativos y Lingüísticos de los Pueblos Indígenas de Chile (Red ELB) is hosting its second Congress on Indigenous languages. The first was held in 2010 and resulted, among other things, in draft legislation on Indigenous languages on Chile. This year’s event includes many panels and speakers and will also help determine what issues the organization will focus on in the coming year. If you’d like to know more you can read our latest column in I Love Chile News on the event here or visit Red ELB’s website here.
