Asia and the Pacific | India | Wokha, Nagaland | Mt. Tiyi College, Wokha
Seminar on Lotha Language Development organized by Lotha Academy in Collaboration with Mt. Tiyi College.
As one of the major tribes in Nagaland, the Lotha Nagas have a rich language heritage that make valuable contribution to world cultural diversity. Currently, globalization and the dominance of English language increasingly threaten the future of Lotha language. The International Year of Indigenous Languages (2019) provides a timely platform to research resources within Lotha language that can help native speakers in deepening their understanding of their own language and foster development, peace building and reconciliation.
