When a Language Dies

Poem by Miguel León Portilla

Poem by Miguel León Portilla. Language: Náhuatl from the Huastec of Hidalgo.

Every language in the world contains a great universe inside it and, by losing them, we lose a point of view, doors and windows to different worldviews and cosmogonies, humanity becomes impoverished.

*Animated short-film from the series: 68 Voices - 68 Hearts
