Please join the LAII, El Centro de la Raza, and Chicana and Chicano Studies for a presentation with visiting speaker Eduardo De la Cruz of the Instituto de Docencia e Investigación Etnológica de Zacatecas (IDIEZ) of Mexico.

Working together with the University of Warsaw, the IDIEZ engages in revitalization efforts focused on endangered indigenous languages, including Nahuatl. This collaborative initiative resulted in the publication of De la Cruz's research on the topic of "Cenyahtoc cintli tonacayo," and which is available in open-access format on the project website. In this presentation, he will share his work with our UNM campus community and discuss its importance.

De la Cruz is a native Nahuatl-language speaker from the Huasteca region of Mexico. He has taught Nahuatl to international students for several years, and has recently begun teaching UNM students via long-distance learning courses organized by the LAII.



This event is free and open to the public. Please note that it will be held in Spanish without English interpretation. Prior knowledge of Nahuatl is not necessary.
