Support the Safeguarding of Amazonian Languages

Where does my donation go?

The Silabario Amazónico was designed and created by Type designer Juan Casco, collaborating with local indigenous communities, anthropologist Carlos Duche, and socio-linguist Olivier Meric. The syllabary is a tool that celebrates the orality of the Amazon and its intagible cultural heritage.

The Silabario Amazónico project is in its first phase of research and community socializing. The first Amazonian Syllabary, which will be launching its first steps of socialization and research with local indigenous communities.

Phase 1 - Research and Community Socializing:
