Abstract: This article is an introduction to the cultural and linguistic status of the Pipil people of El Salvador. First, it discusses the most accepted hypotheses regarding the origin of this people, the Conquest, the Colony, and the continuous deterioration of their language and culture to their present state. Then a general description of the Pipil people and their language is given. Finally, a five component linguistic revitalization process is proposed for the reversion of the Pipil language shift.
