korinta commented on Mayan Languages on the Move

Thank you Isaac,
This was a challenge as it is called. A good challenge in which my teammates and I learned a lot of how to frame or better said reframe the project in a way that it will be sustainable across time and space and replicable. The learning curve of how to reframe I think took most of out time. Thank you so much! Isaac Jumba Team

Powerful and beautiful. We hope we can create an environment here in Champaign where all languages are able to thrive and flourish. Many of the people we have talked to when speaking about their language and culture just shine and I can see how powerful it is to be able to talk about something so embodied and intimate and at the same time part of their everyday life.

Helen, Thank you. We are working hard trying to get this off the ground. We have the right ingredients and it is the time to do this. Communities on the move across the world have the right to not only use and speak their languages but work towards strengthening and expanding them. I like how Roberto Tijerina (works on interpreting for social justice) speaks of language as "personal, visceral, and powerful; it is tied to our lands and to our bodies". As a person on the move myself who has to speak a different language other than my mother tongue I know that feeling. Thank you for your comment. @HeleneRassias-Miles
