SSILA Archiving Award to Juan Jesús Vázquez Álvarez and Jessica Coon

The 2019 Society for the Study of Indigenous Languages of Latin America Archiving Award was presented to Juan Jesús Vázquez Álvarez and Jessica Coon for their Chol language archive at the Archive of Indigenous Languages of Latin America. They received the award in New Orleans at the SSILA meeting, which meets concurrently with the LSA. The archive was created through a project supported by a National Geographic Explorers Grant, and involved training of Ch’ol-speaking undergraduate students to record and transcribe narratives in their home communities.
