The Pan African and Indigenous Language Initiative

Description:
The Pan African and Indigenous Language Initiative (PILI) is a student-based organization founded at the Nyumburu Cultural Center during the Fall semester of 2011. Formerly known as the African and Indigenous Language Program, the organizations name change reflects its evolution from an experiential linguistic endeavor, to a polished, progressive program whose scope goes beyond mere language acquisition. Specifically, the program seeks to combine language instruction with cultural and political education. The result, is a dynamic curriculum through which participants not only acquire an African or Pan African language, but also a new perspective. PILI currently offers language instruction in three languages: Swahili, Haitian Creole and the Krio language of Sierra Leone/Pidgin English.
