The Pilagá people: neighbours of the Tobas

One possible future project would be to work together with the Pilagá Indians from central Formosa province.


The Pilagás (in their language: pit’laĝá) live close to the Pilcomayo River, downstream from the Western Tobas, spread across 19 communities. In numbers they are a little more than the Western Tobas (some 6000 people), and their language is very similar to the Western Toba language.


Over recent years, Michael has felt a growing desire to work together with the Tobas and the Pilagás, but as yet nothing has materialised. The languages are so close that a project working in parallel between the two groups could be feasible, maybe even using computer programs to generate initial translations from one language to the other.


The challenges:


The benefits:


But the key issue is this: would there be support from the Bible Society for a joint translation project, relating to an overall total of 11,000 people?

Please pray about this!
