The University Libraries and the Latin American Studies Center will celebrate the addition of over 100 book titles by indigenous authors and about Andean topics to the libraries’ collections.
At the Nahuatl Evening, three speakers, including Kathia Ibacache, Romance Languages Librarian, and Director of the Latin American Studies Center Leila Gomez, will talk about the research, courses and conferences at CU Boulder in support of Latin American Indigenous languages and cultures. The event will also feature performances by Mexican Nahuatl poet Fabiola Carrillo Tieco, the Boulder Children’s Chorale and a Quechua musical group. The Boulder Children’s Chorale consists of four ensembles for students from kindergarten through ninth grade. They focus on helping expose children to diverse, quality choral repertoire while building their abilities as musicians and a love for singing! Their two auditioned ensembles, Bel Canto and Volante, will be performing “Koonex” and “Macochi Cochi Pitentzin.”
Mexican Nahuatl poet, Fabiola Carrillo Tieco, will recite three poems in Nahuatl language (Via Zoom). Quechua musical group and dancer will also perform via Zoom.
