About this product
- DescriptionAs part of the larger, ongoing movement throughout Latin America to reclaim n-Hispanic cultural heritages and identities, indigeus writers in Mexico are reappropriating the written word in their ancestral tongues and in Spanish. As a result, the long-marginalized, innermost feelings, needs, and worldviews of Mexico's ten to twenty million indigeus peoples are w being widely revealed to the Western societies with which these peoples coexist. To contribute to this process and serve as a bridge of intercultural communication and understanding, this groundbreaking anthology-to be published in three volumes over the coming years-gathers works by the leading generation of writers in thirteen Mexican indigeus languages: Nahuatl, Maya, Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Tojolabal, Tabasco Chontal, Purepecha, Sierra Zapoteco, Isthmus Zapoteco, Mazateco, Nahnu, Totonaco, and Huichol. Volume 1 contains narratives and essays by Mexican indigeus writers. Their texts appear first in their native language, followed by English and Spanish translations. Frischmann and Montemayor have abundantly antated the English, Spanish, and indigeus-language texts and added glossaries and essays that trace the development of indigeus texts, literacy, and writing. These supporting materials make the anthology especially accessible and interesting for nspecialist readers seeking a greater understanding of Mexico's indigeus peoples. The other volumes of this work will be Volume 2: Poetry/Poesia and Volume 3: Theater/Teatro.
