Revitalizing Mayangna Language and Culture: The importance of Mother Tongue Education in Nicaragua

In January 2012, UNESCO held a workshop in Managua, Nicaragua with the aim of working with Mayangna teachers and bilingual education professionals to improve the quality of mother-tongue education that Mayangna children receive. In particular, teachers were introduced to pilot versions of classroom materials in Mayangna language, based on the UNESCO publication, "Mayangna Knowledge of the Interdependence of People and Nature: Fish and Turtles" and developed by a team of Mayangna education professionals together with UNESCO and Nicaragua's Ministry of Education. In this audio slideshow, a Mayangna linguist with a background in mother-tongue education and a Mayangna teacher talk about the importance of Mother Tongue education for them, their students and their communities.
