Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders in collaboration with The National Museum of the American Indian in New York presents a panel discussion exploring issues of language, expression and identity among the Mixteco community in New York City. These estimated 25,000 indigenous migrants bring a rich and complex history of language diversity as part of their transborder experience. Migrants to New York, who have settled primarily in East Harlem, Staten Island, the Bronx and the Upper West Side come mostly from the Mexican states of Guerrero and Oaxaca. They face special challenges in the areas of education and social services. A panel of experts and community members will look at the unique situation of this special migrant community. Our goal is give visitors a deeper understanding of the diversity within the migrant population, while emphasizing the common threads that connect immigrants and indigenous communities throughout our region.  Presented as part of Immigrant Heritage Week 2010
