About the project

Located primarily in Oaxaca, Puebla, and Guerrero, the Mixtecs are one of the largest indigenous groups in Mexico. With a rich history and cultural heritage that dates back to pre-Columbian times, they’re known for their impressive art, stonework, codices, and contributions to medicine.

Let's Learn Mixtec is an app that aims to generate interest in the native language, culture, and cosmogony of the peoples of Santa Inés de Zaragoza in Oaxaca, Mexico. Based on the book of the same name by Donato García, the app offers 20 interactive multimedia lessons to learn Ñuu Davi, a variant of the Mixtec language family, covering a range of vocabulary and expressions that include greetings, relatives, numbers, animals, geography, community life, and traditions.

Launched in 2014 by Manuvo and the Cultural Center of Spain in Mexico, Let’s Learn Mixtec is part of an app series, which includes Let's Learn Purépecha and Let's Learn Náhuatl, whose goal is to preserve and promote indigenous languages, as they’re vital to the identity, diversity, and intangible heritage of Mexico and the world.
