Oaxaca, Mexico – Here is a must-follow, must-amplify, hashtag for anyone keen on Indigenous culture, language, and multigenerational knowledge sharing.

Presenting #UsaTuVoz (Use Your Voice) promoted by Voces del Valle (@VocesValle) which encourages Indigenous language use on social networks.

The hashtag was designed to curate / encourage / amplify the tweets of Oaxacan high school students who committed to tweeting in their Indigenous languages 10 times a week for seven weeks. There have now been three cycles, and the program continues.
