Speaking With One Heart: The Mayan Languages of Mexico
Produced by: Katie Davis
The Spanish conquistadors banned Indian languages and their priests burned scrolls of Mayan writings, but the Mayan words could not be silenced. Producer Katie Davis visits Robert Laughlin, an anthropologist who has lived with and studied the evolving language of the Mayans of Chiapas since 1960. They travel through the villages, hamlets and homes of Chiapas to discover the power of language in culture
