The native languages and culture of the Ojibwa tribe and Peruvian natives will be introduced through words, song and dance in a lecture by two faculty members at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Spanish professor Elia Armacanqui-Tipacti and social work professor Sonny Smart will present "Importance of Indigenous Languages: Ojibwa and Runasimi (Quechua)" at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday4/8 in the Pinery Room of the Portage County Public Library, 1001 Main St. This is the seventh of the eight-part 2013-14 Community Lecture Series sponsored by the UWSP College of Letters and Science.

The presentation will give a short history of the languages, how each connect to native culture and how the languages have survived western influence and attempts to discontinue them through historic federal policies and missionary schools. A demonstration of song and dance will explore how languages and cultures interact with each other.

The Lecture Series schedule and previously recorded lectures may be viewed at www.uwsp.edu/cols/lectureseries.
