Langscape Magazine Vol. 5-1

Voices of the Earth, Part 1

Volume 5, Issue 1, Summer 2016 in the northern hemisphere


We are marking Terralingua’s twentieth anniversary by “going back to our roots” with this issue’s theme: “Voices of the Earth.” In 1996, we chose the name Terralingua to suggest two things at once: the language of the Earth —  the voice of Mother Nature; and the languages of the Earth — the many voices of the world’s diverse peoples, which have evolved through intimate interaction with the Earth in each specific place. We wanted to hear from and about the Voices of the Earth, and so we did! This issue brings you fascinating stories and images of biocultural diversity from all over the globe. Read sample articles below.
