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.
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!
