Celebrate Mexico's Linguistic Diversity

Did you know that Mexico has no official language? Mexico has over 60 national languages including Chinanteco, Otomí, Mixteco, Nahuatl, Triqui, Yaqui and Spanish among others. Many of these languages are spoken in the tri-state area.

Mano a Mano and the Endangered Language Alliance invite you to El Museo del Barrio for a special program on Mexican Indigenous languages.

  • Lecture on Mexican languages by Dr. George A. Broadwell. Ph.D.
  • Performance by Coatlicue Theater Company
  • Songs in Nahuatl by Cetiliztli Nauhcampa Quetzalcoatl in Ixachitlan
  • Dzul Dance Company fuses dance with aerial arts, contortion and acrobatics to communicate indigenous pre-Hispanic and Mexican culture.
  • Short videos in various languages

Come celebrate our indigenous communities in this urban landscape, and learn more about the linguistic diversity that lies therein.
