Aymara Hangul?

So apparently after the semi-success with the Indonesian Cia-cia, will Aymara also be written with the distinctive Korean alphabet?!

What do y'all think? Should other American-Indian tribes also adopt the script? Imagine Apache written in Hangul! Or is a native script like the Cherokee or Canadian Syllabics another option?

That seems to be an odd idea to me. Though I would find it an interesting idea.

I doubt it would catch on all that much though, as most languages in the area (including Spanish and English) are written in the Latin script.

Though the reading doesn't seem to indicate that Aymara would be written with Hangul, just the Kim taught some Hangul (Korean) to some Aymara.

Sorry the one that implied a script change was in Spanish this was the only English one I could find.
The ones in Spanish and Korean imply it more. After the unofficial success with an Indonesian tribe, there seems to be a new trend on exporting Hangul right now.

Though if adopted, even by a small amount, it would send a big message.

Well this is actually more common than we think, some countries seem to change their scripts every week at times. Unless they have a cultural script like the Cherokee Syllabary or the Georgian script.

Ah, I see. And that wouldn't have been much help, as I don't know Spanish. :P

But yes, it would be fascinating to see it happen. I'm certainly not saying that it can't or shouldn't. Just seems an odd choice, to me anyway.

I think it would be pretty neat if this happened. :D I'm slightly bias though because I like Hangul more and think it is prettier than the Latin script. :p Although, if the Hangul script works well/better with the Aymara language, why not use it?

Here's a 4 part documentary on the Cia-cia adoption of Hangul, the third part goes to Bolivia where the Korean Ambassador has apparently learned Aymara and it looks like Hangul is being adapted for Aymara. It looks neat so far.
