Nido de Lenguas:


Oaxaca is home to dozens of indigenous languages

Many speakers of these languages live in Santa Cruz and throughout the Monterey Bay. As part of our mission to increase awareness of indigenous Oaxacan languages, Nido de Lenguas regularly travels to local festivals and events to engage with the community, teach vocabulary using games, and establish connections with native speakers.

In 2017-2018, volunteers from Nido de Lenguas attended the Dia de los Muertos festival, the Viva Oaxaca Guelaguetza, the Martin Luther King Day festival, the Senderos Latino Role Models conference, among other events. These events allow us to connect with and inform the community about Oaxacan languages, as well as upcoming Nido de Lenguas events.
