Reclaiming a [Native] Central American Narrative

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The session begins with an introduction to the emergence of Central American production of media and storytelling. Within this dialogue, Tierra Narrative finds itself as a multimedia storytelling platform dedicated to the creation of new narratives through transnational cultural production between the Central American diaspora and the homeland. Through TN we prioritize the stories of Indigenous artists and other historically resilient groups that are left out of the latinidad conversation.
