papiamento

This year will be dedicated to ‘Papiamento’ the lingua franca on the island of Aruba, ordained by the Department of Culture and approved by the Council of Ministers. Organizations, press, schools, community, centre, institutions and parents were urged to put emphasis on the correct use of the language, This year celebrates the 10th anniversary that Papiamento became official language in the Kingdom of The Netherlands next to the Dutch language. Remains only to urge Parliament to officialize the extensive orthography. The whole year there will be lots of activities organized in cooperation with the Department of Culture.

BookIsh Publishers will be bringing out a new work in our ‘dushi’ language Papiamento. And BookIsh Plaza  ezine will be putting more attention this year to the Papiamento language books.
