"Partnering with Indigenous Families from Latin America" is a family outreach video series featuring Henry Sales (Mam), an Indigenous educator from Guatemala who came to the U.S. as a teenager. The videos are available in English, Spanish, and Mam and can be used in family engagement events with Indigenous families from Latin America.
In the videos, Mr. Sales encourages other Mam and Indigenous families from Latin America to keep their culture and language strong in this special PSA series, available in English, Spanish, and Mam.
Note: While this series highlights the Mam language and culture, the videos can be used with Latin American Indigenous communities who speak other languages. Interpreters who speak families’
languages can interpret the videos, or some families may be comfortable watching the videos in English or Spanish. Knowing your families’ language preferences will allow you to plan accordingly.
This project was made possible with the support of our founding partner, the American Federation of Teachers.
