Whistling in the Wind: Preserving a Language Without Words

 
The last speakers of a language without words reside on La Gomera, one of the smallest islands in Spain’s Canary Islands. "El Silbo," a whistled communication used in rural and isolated areas, is dying out as islanders embrace digital communication and move to cities and the mainland. Even so, El Silbo has a firm place in the island's culture. Some of La Gomera's schools are teaching the language and in 2009, UNESCO declared it a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
