Presentation by Instructor Silvia Ventura Luna, MA, Cal State University Channel Islands – Department of Global Languages and Cultures Program- Mixtec Instructor

Mixtec (Tu’un Savi- Language of the Rain) is an indigenous language spoken by more than 800,000 people largely in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Mixtec is not only spoken in Mexico but also in our community. Over 40,000 speakers live in Ventura County. The Mixtec have flourished for thousands of years, and regarded as among the most advanced societies in pre-Columbian America.

This presentation welcomes anyone wanting to learn about the people, culture, and language as the vibrant Mixteco community moves forward in the 21st century.

A Question & Answer time follows Ms. Ventura Luna’s talk.
