Hello everyone! Today I would like to introduce to you a language called Pima Bajo, also known as Oob No'ok by it's speakers.

Pima Bajo is an endangered language spoken by 1000 people in Mexico. It's part of the Uto-Aztecan family tree. Because of this, it is related to languages such as Nahuatl, Pipil (or Nawat), Huichol, and Yaqui.

I have created a Pima Bajo discord server to promote the learning of this amazing language. In this server you will find resources, both in English and in Spanish, to aid you in the learning of Pima Bajo.

It is important to support and promote the learning of endangered languages, because when a language dies, we don't simply lose words. We lose a whole point of view.

Thank you for reading. I wish to all of you a very blessed new year, full of new opportunities.

Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.

Hi Sam! This is so interesting, thanks for posting.

I've looked up some resources and this website is great for learning this language.

I would like to make yet another course besides the Afrikaans course for this language. Haha! What d'ya think? Would you maybe like to do it?

Cheers! :D

Hey there! I haven't seen that resource yet! I have gathered a couple of very useful resources though. Here they are if anyone is interested:

https://www.academia.edu/31214079/Gram%C3%A1tica_de_referencia_del_pima_bajo_Volumen_I (Highly recommended)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/13j2fhfs4gy1ArlyfGZ9NxYKU3OigiphR/view (quite useful!)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eVqtTLpEApQaCrMjbxf6HkUrS6Dh0jiv/view (probably one of the only useful courses in English)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/194NVLx8H6qXhySCFjsYuB1gCd9jc0KWZ/view (highly recommended, includes lexicon.)

A memrise course would be pretty useful for vocab only. Pima Bajo grammar is quite complicated, like most of the Uto-Aztecan languages. All of the resources above are in Spanish, except for the English one.

Thanks for sharing that link! :)
