The Basic Plan
Hi! Our names are Helen, Katie, Alex, and Caroline and we're all college students in the Philadelphia area. Starting on June 10th, we'll be heading down to Oaxaca, Mexico with our professor, Brook Lillehaugen. Our plan is to join a growing academic and cultural movement for the celebration and dissemination of Zapotec, an indigenous language of southern Mexico. We're hoping that by publishing photos and updates about our goals and daily progress, we'll be able to spread the word about the amazing Zapotec language.
We plan to spend most of our time in Ciudad de Oaxaca. Alex and I will be helping organize the library and create pedagogical materials at El Centro Academico y Cultural San Pablo. We will also be doing field research with Professor Lillehaugen in the surrounding towns. Katie and Caroline will be working in the field daily.
Please feel free to browse the website! We've included some more information about the Zapotec language as well as our blog.
