Kichwa Hatari at Penn: Running the First Kichwa-Language Radio Show in the United States

Kichwa Hatari is a weekly radio program, the first in the indigenous Kichwa language in the U.S, aimed at reaching the Quechua/Kichwa population in the United States, particularly in New York.

This initiative is blending radio and community work into a one-of-a-kind project that is as much about revolutionizing radio airwaves as it is about cultural/linguistic empowerment and grassroots social organizing.

Kichwa Hatari members will participate at the Andean Language and Cultural Advocates Roundtable, as a part of the “2017 Thinking Andean Studies Conference“.
