On March 5th 2018 we had the second workshop of the National Geographic-funded Ch’ol documentation project. The event took place at the Unidad Académica Multidisciplinaria Yajalón, part of the Universidad Intercultural of Chiapas (UNICH). Fifteen students of the Language and Culture BA program participated in the workshop.

We had a great first workshop in Oxolotán last week, with active participation from students in the Universidad Intercultural’s Lengua y Cultura program. The university’s article, and more pictures from the event, can be found here. We’re looking forward to continuing the collaboration!
