講 題:LANGUAGE POLICY IN GUATEMALA

摘要:In this lecture/talk, I will cover the past and current situation of language policy in Guatemala. Since the Spanish invasion and colonization of Guatemala, the indigenous peoples were subjugated and forced to speak Spanish. Over the past five centuries, the indigenous peoples of Guatemala have been relegated from mainstream Guatemala society, given that they do not have access to education, justice and medical care in their own languages (Mayan languages). However, since the signing of the agreements in 1996, which ended 36 years of civil war between the Guatemalan government and the guerrilla, progress has been made to ensure the indigenous peoples can also participate in Guatemalan society as citizens.

Currently, the Mayan people (as well as two other linguistic groups: the Xincas and Garifunas) have access to education in their own languages, which is a huge step forward towards language equality in the country. Likewise, degree programs aimed at teaching indigenous languages and culture have been promoted at Higher Education Centers all over the country. Nevertheless, a cohesive and fair language policy must be fostered to guarantee the rights of the indigenous peoples, as citizens of Guatemala.
