HAKITIA: A JEWISH LANGUAGE

  • Alvaro Fernando Rodrigues da Cunha Western Connecticut State University

Resumo

The Hakitia language is the language of Amazonian Jews. They were expelled from Spain in 1492. Because they moved to Morocco, their variant of Ladino contains Moroccan Arabic, in addition to 15th century Castilian Spanish and Biblical Hebrew influences. In prior centuries, these Jews fled the famines in Morocco, and settled in the rainforest of Brazil. They now primarily live in the rainforest of the Brazilian Amazon.
