Let’s Talk COVID-19

Conversemos COVID-19 (Let’s Talk COVID-19) is an initiative produced by the Indigenous and Diasporic Language Consortium at the NYU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies in collaboration with CUNY Mexican Studies Institute, Kichwa Hatari, and the Linguistics Summer School Bolivia, aimed at offering valuable information about the coronavirus pandemic in various Indigenous and diasporic languages widely spoken in New York, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

The information is delivered in minute-and-a-half-long video capsules narrated in Quechua, Haitian Kreyòl, Nahuatl, Mixteco, Garifuna, and Kichwa, spoken by NYC immigrant communities from Mexico, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Peru, Bolivia, and others.
