Protecting an indigenous culture while studying in Mexico
Six students from SUNY Fredonia have just finished a six-week study-abroad program in Mexico at the Ollin Tlahtoalli Centro de Lenguas y Cultura Mexicana.
The name of the language center is composed of two Nahuatl words “Ollin” and “Tlahtoalli” which mean movement and language respectively; it is a way to honor the ongoing process of language change. We provide Spanish lessons within a cultural framework and develop projects aimed at preserving and promoting indigenous languages and local traditions.
