Two young Triki students attending the Bilingual Teachers' College of the Mexican state of Oaxaca (Escuela Normal BilingÃ¼e e Intercultural de Oaxaca) saw Al Goreâ€™s documentary film "An Inconvenient Truth" about the threat of global warming. Seeking to share this environmental message with their community as well as promote the use of the Nanj NÃ¯'Ã¯n language (also known as Triki) in new spaces, the students decided to make a voice-over of the film into their language. In order to translate the script, the students carried out a series of workshops and consultations within the community in order to recover words that were no longer in use and to generate new words that they now propose to the Triki community of Yumaâ€™ Niko (San AndrÃ©s Chicahuaxtla) and neighboring towns.
