Join us online to learn from Zapotec language activists and educators about their work to reclaim knowledge and resist anti-indigenous ideologies in Mexico and the diaspora. Learn how dictionaries relate to weaving, hear Zapotec poetry, and listen to Zapotec language in context through a tour of San Jerónimo Tlacochahuaya, Oaxaca. Sign up to join in with a short Zapotec language lesson before or after this event. Panelists will be in conversation around this international collaboration that seeks to center and celebrate Zapotec knowledge and expertise through research, education, and the creation of publicly available resources, such as Zapotec Talking Dictionaries and Ticha.
