Langscape Magazine Vol. 5-2

Voices of the Earth, Part 2

Volume 5, Issue 2, Winter 2016 in the northern hemisphere


In this second issue of 2016, we continue to mark Terralingua’s twentieth anniversary by “going back to our roots” with our “Voices of the Earth” theme. 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 more fascinating stories and images of biocultural diversity from all over the globe. Read sample articles below.
