Native California language preservation; Xochitl, Dhr. Seven (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

The essence of who we are is wrapped up in our language. What human knowledge is lost when a language goes extinct? And why should we care?

Join ALOUD for a freewheeling conversation among language activists working to reclaim indigenous languages in California and Mexico.

For the first time together on stage, this unique group of participants includes:
  • Master linguist and language preservationist Leanne Hinton;
  • Native California language activist Vincent Medina;
  • Zapotec language rights activist Odilia Romero Hernández;
  • Poet/activist Bob Holman, co-producer of the PBS documentary, Language Matters.
Bilingual (Spanish/English) program with simultaneous interpretation by Antena Los Ángeles. Includes post-program reception in the Library’s courtyard. More
