I work with teams of community activists, students, programmers, and graphic designers to create (both print and online) language learning materials for Zapotec and Native American communities. I work closely with the Grupo Cultural Tagayu’ in San Pablo Macuiltianguis, Oaxaca, Mexico and have supported Talking Dictionary and ethnobotany projects in other Zapotec communities.
