What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Aymara language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Aymara tribe and their society.
Please note that Aymaras and other
American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Aymara history is interesting and
important, but the Aymara Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
