In February of 2010, on a small island in the Bay of Bengal, a language went extinct. Boa Sr, an 80-year old native of the Andaman Islands, was the last fluent speaker of Aka-Bo1. When she passed away, a culture recorded in her mother tongue died with her. The songs, stories and wisdom of her people are no longer part of our world.
