General Info

This event aims to promote an exchange of ideas between Quechua speakers, community leaders, college students and professors who share an interest and passion for Quechua language and Andean culture. This is a space for young people to become dynamic leaders in the academic context where there is an increasing interest in Indigenous languages and cultures of the Americas.

The Quechua Alliance Meeting has the format of a one-day gathering with cultural activities, lectures, games, debates and dialogues. In 2018 we will be hosting the event on November 17th at the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. Among our guests we are inviting Quechua activist and hip-hop musician Liberato Kani, UN official of the  Secretariat of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues Peoples Mirian Masaquiza, and we will honor Elva Ambía, founder of the Quechua Collective of New York, by giving her the 2018 Lifetime Quechua Award.

Since our first gathering in 2015 at the University of Pennsylvania we are working to build a strong network and community of Quechua language enthusiasts.

The 2018 edition of this gathering is organized by the Quechua Language Program at Penn and Penn’s Andean Representation group.
