Space is limited.
Join Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders, Endangered Language Alliance, and Bowery Arts + Science for the seventh installment of Unheard of! a presentation of poetry in indigenous languages of Mexico.
Mexico is a major center of linguistic diversity. The Mexican government officially recognizes 68 indigenous language groups, and each of these groups counts a large number of language varieties, many of which are spoken in New York. But despite the pervasive Mexican indigenous presence in the city, this linguistic and cultural diversity is seldom celebrated or even recognized.
Come to Unheard Of! 7 and hear poems in Nahuatl, Mixtec, Totonac and other indigenous languages read by native speakers and accompanied by music and translations.
Q & A session to follow.
Unheard Of! is an ongoing series presented by the Endangered Language Alliance highlighting the linguistic and cultural diversity of New York City and beyond.
Support to Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders is provided, in part by, Union Square Awards, a project of the Tides Center; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
