OUR LANGUAGE: QUECHUA
Cultivate and promote the use of our Quechua language is a duty that we must fulfill as citizens and also that on February 21 is celebrated the world day of the mother tongue so it is our turn to talk about our cultural heritage: Quechua.
Quechua is originally from Peru, but is also spoken in other countries such as Ecuador and Bolivia; and although its use has decreased over the years we are proud to be heirs of this beautiful legacy, which is said to be a language similar to Romance because it actually came to be thanks to the union of several languages that existed at the time.
Quechua is particularly popular for the sweetness it expresses in its sounds, a language that is more than 500 years old and that managed to survive the colonization process leads us to conclude that Quechua does not only come from the Incas, it is more than that: it is the richest indigenous cultural legacy of the Andes.
To be able to express ourselves in this language is something that falls on us as people with a great history behind us, a history that still cannot be fully discovered. How was it that a people that did not have the necessary technology could build such perfect and beautiful buildings as Machu Picchu, Inti Killa Sacsayhuaman, Tambo Machay, Tipon, Pikillaqta, Puca Pucara, Ollantaytambo, etc.? The list is endless.
It is this and many other things that make Peru a country full of wonders, mysteries, history, and culture. And as Peruvians we are proud to be part of this legacy.
