CLABS HOST TALK ON "LAND AND IDENTITY THROUGH NAHUA WORLD VIEW"

The Center for Latin American and Border Studies will host Jennie Luna at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Nason House. "Land and Identity through Nahua World View" will discuss how racial projects in Mexico have led to, what Guillermo Bonfil Batalla calls, the "de-Indianization" of Mexican citizens, or the denial of the pluri-ethnic and pluri-linguistic reality of Mexico, el Mexico Profundo. The continued discrimination of indigenous peoples and languages has led to a significant decrease in native Nahuatl speakers and speakers of other indigenous languages in Mexico. There is, however, an indigenous language revitalization movement in Mexico that hopes to shift the discourse on indigenous languages and impact dual/multi-language education in Mexico.

The talk will present the history of Nahuatl language revitalization movements and the critical need to engage in indigenous language work, as it ensures the sustenance of culture, identity, and relationships with land, the environment and spirituality.

This talk is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. The Nason house is located at 1070 University Ave., across from Kinko's/FedEx.
