Digital archiving of endangered Mexican and South American linguistic materials to be made accessible by the Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America.

The Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America (AILLA) is a digital repository of multimedia materials. A central part of AILLA's mission is to locate valuable language resources, digitize and catalog them in accordance with international standards, house them in a secure repository, and make them accessible to indigenous people, researchers, and interested laypersons worldwide. The two-year Archiving Significant Collections II (ASC-II) project will perform this service for the following six collections: 1) Achuar and Shuar [Ecuador and Peru]; 2) Quichua and Quechua [Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru]; 3) Tzotzil and other Mayan languages [Mexico]; 4) Pastaza Quechua [Ecuador]; 5) Huasteca Nahua [Mexico]; and 6) Tucano [Brazil].
