Animated Tales for All

Presented by Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Yenching Library

Watch a vibrant collection of short animations narrated in some of the sixty-eight Indigenous languages of Mexico. Created by Mexican designer Gabriela Badillo and selected from her project, 68 Voices, 68 Hearts, these films help foster pride, respect, and the use of Indigenous Mexican languages. The family-friendly stories have English subtitles and are based on legends and poems from native communities. The event includes a Q&A with Badillo in English and Spanish, an authentic Mexican snack, and a chance to learn phrases in one of Mexico’s Indigenous languages. Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology.
