The Huitoto Tribe, from the thick forest of the Amazon rainforest in Colombia, are working to teach its children the Huitoto language. Toby Muse of Al Jazeera attended a class in Bogota, far from the tribe’s territory, as a handful of tribal members have moved into the city.

The video discusses a growing confidence by Indigenous People possibly being the reason many are interested in learning the traditional language.
