Challenge

When an ethnic group starts losing their language, they begin to lose their identity too and soon the culture is dead, causing sometimes social problems (drugs, alcoholism, gangs). This is why in our program learning by playing we support different ethnic groups in the preservation of the language starting with little kids, we have done 6 articles as didactic material that help the bicultural mentors, to teach the kids their maternal language with the goal of preserving their cultural identity.

Solution

With the elaboration of this didactic material the native teachers will have a tool that's going to help them to carry on programs for the preservation of the yaqui and mayo languages and also the entire society will have a view of these cultures.

Long-Term Impact

The project is going to provide 257 schools with didactic materials that will help them to participate in the XXI century without loosing their important heritage.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
