Unprecedented study: Language and Culture Disappear with Western Development and Globalization

Unprecedented study:  Language and Culture Disappear with Western Development and Globalization | News - the World's Cultures, Museums and Cultural Institutions | Scoop.it

   -▶  BIODIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABILITY ARE CLOSELY LINKED TO SURVIVAL OF LANGUAGE AND CULTURE. An unprecedented study published by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Loss of global biological and cultural diversity paints a dire picture of the state and future of our species. The world’s animal and plant species are disappearing 1,000 times faster than ever in recorded history. Some areas of the world have lost 60 percent of their languages since the mid-1970’s, and 90 percent of the world’s languages are expected to vanish by the year 2099. Life, in general, has suffered horribly from the runaway spread of European values and the notions of progress that began with the Industrial Revolution. A sharp bit of mathematics finally brings forth the maps that expose the poverty of the world’s major carbon emitters and the wealth that remains in those parts of the world where the indigenous are making their final stand....http://newsjunkiepost.com/2012/10/11/biodiversity-and-sustainability-are-closely-linked-to-language-and-culture/

                                 "LANGUAGE MATTERS" 1:49:18

                    Winner of the Grand Festival Award for Documentary

               at the 23rd Annual Berkeley Video and Film Festival 2014

"Language Matters" asks what we lose when languages die and how we can save them. It was filmed around the world: on a remote island off the coast of Australia, where 400 Aboriginal people speak 10 different languages, all at risk; in Wales, where Welsh, once in danger, is today making a comeback; and in Hawaii, where a group of Hawaiian activists is fighting to save the native tongue. http://video.pbs.org/video/2365391566/


                        WEBSITE "Language Matters" with Bob Holman

What do we lose when a language dies? What does it take to save a language? There are over 6000 languages in the whole world. We lose one every two weeks. Hundreds will be lost within the next generation. By the end of this century, half of the world’s languages will have vanished.

In this era of rapid change, indigenous communities with rich cultural heritages urgently need the world’s attention. Anthropologists estimate that every two weeks a tribal elder dies with the last remaining knowledge of his or her people’s language, and along with them dies many other living expressions—the crafts, skills, beliefs, lore—of a unique heritage... http://www.vcproject.org

▶ PHOTOS OF MONGOLIA'S DESERTIFICATION REVEAL SHOCKING EFFECTS OF CHANGING CLIMATE.  To this day, at least 25% of Mongolia's population lives a nomadic life, and in doing so, they remain fiercely dependent on open land for survival. However, due to the fluctuation in climate in recent years, changes to the landscape have rendered this lifestyle difficult, if not impossible, to maintain. Over the course of the past 30 years, approximately a quarter of the country has turned to desert, with around 850 lakes and 2,000 rivers having dried out. If this pattern persists, the Mongolian tradition that's existed for thousands of years will become extinct.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/10/daesung-lee_n_6648868.html

 

International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA), November 2014
Non-Carbon Benefits in REDD+

▶ NON-CARBON BENEFITS ARE CRITICAL FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLES CONTINUED SURVIVAL AND FUTURE GENERATIONS, as their identities, livelihoods and cultural heritage are historically rooted in their forests that are part of their traditional territories. It is therefore necessary and imperative to ensure the recognition of indigenous peoples’ collective rights to their forest, land and resources as part of the human rights framework in approaches to Non-Carbon Benefits as well as to the overall design and implementation of REDD+. Likewise, incentivizing Non-Carbon Benefits should take into account the historical role of indigenous peoples and, in particular, indigenous women in forest protection and conservation with a view of providing for their needs and priorities for their overall wellbeing. http://www.iwgia.org/publications/search-pubs?publication_id=700

The island-dwelling Guna people of Panama are one of the most sovereign indigenous communities in the world, being endowed with extensive land tenure and self-governance rights. And like many of the world’s traditional cultures, they have a tiny carbon footprint...

 ▶ INDONESIA'S CHILDREN SEE RAVAGED ENVIRONMENT IN THEIR FUTURE. A generation ago, Borneo was one of the wildest places on the planet, a stronghold for species like orangutan, pygmy elephants, Sumatran rhinos, and clouded leopards among tens-of-thousands of other. But decades of logging and oil palm plantations has changed the landscape of Borneo forever: in fact a recent study found that the island has lost 73 percent of its intact lowland forest and 30 percent of its total forest cover since 1973. In the face of this large-scale environmental destruction, a new study in PLOS ONE finds that Indonesian Borneo's children have a pessimistic view of their future, predicting rising temperatures, wildlife declines, and continued destruction of the island's great rainforests. http://news.mongabay.com/2014/0811-hance-kalimantan-children.html

However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life. Economy, profit and capitalization became more important than respecting our planet and an ancient knowledge to advance a new way of life. http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/inside-garbage-world/

Jacqueline Garcia pd1's curator insight, March 22, 2015 3:12 PM

In this scoop i noticed many key points including, acculturation, placelessness, loss of language, and groups of indigenous people. We can see the acculturation since through the years languages, animal species and traditions have started disappearing 1000 times faster.Soon 90% of all languages will be gone. This will lead to loss of uniqueness and inevitably placelessness among the world. The reason why languages are being lost is because these indigenous people want  to take the opportunity to get a higher level education and end up leaving their homes. Also they could be out on reserves and are confined to a certain area with many restrictions. If we continue this pattern we will lose the diverse groups in the world. 

Ethan Bernick's curator insight, March 22, 2015 10:33 PM

This scoop explains the rate at which the worlds languages are disappearing and how many languages have been lost. It compares the languages of the world to endangered species, being found in less and less areas.

Taiwanese indigenous tribes want Maori 'cuzzies' to come 'home' for a holiday | New Zealand Herald

Taiwanese indigenous tribes want Maori 'cuzzies' to come 'home' for a holiday | New Zealand Herald | News - the World's Cultures, Museums and Cultural Institutions | Scoop.it

Taiwanese tribal woman Jouan Pan is in New Zealand with a mission - to get her "long lost cuzzies" to visit "home".
Taiwan is believed to be where the cultures and languages of the Austronesian tribes began, and that indigenous people of Taiwan and Maori are genetically connected.
Its Council of Indigenous Peoples along with tribal tour operators are in New Zealand to promote Taiwan's indigenous tribal tours for the very first time.
"Our relationship with New Zealand as very special, because we consider Maori as part of our extended family," said Pan, a senior council officer and member of the Amis tribe.
"Taiwan is therefore the ancestral land for many New Zealanders, this tour is designed to help people experience our long surviving cultures."
Austronesians also include Pacific Islanders and Polynesians in Hawaii.
