Some history. Rosemary Beam de Azcona organized the first colloquium: the Conference on Otomanguean and Oaxacan Languages ​​(COOL) at the University of California, Berkeley in 2004. This first Colloquium was born from the positive experience of the La Voz Indígena de Oaxaca congress, organized by Pamela Munro, G. Aaron Broadwell and Kevin Terraciano at the University of California, Los Angeles.

After COOL, the colloquium headquarters was changed to the city of Oaxaca and since then, each Colloquium commemorates a leading scholar of the Otomanguean languages.
