Summer 2012

This summer update of Ball State Research explores two projects that are 2,000 miles apart but closely aligned in their commitment to understand and preserve cultural heritage.

In Preserving Indigenous Languages in Mexico, two Ball State professors of English are helping native speakers of Totonac and Tepehua languages maintain their culture. They have produced five bilingual children’s books that share traditional stories and folktales.

Working closer to home, We Dig, Dig, Dig describes the efforts of the students, faculty, and staff of the Department of Anthropology’s Applied Archaeology Laboratories. Between fall 2010 and summer 2011, students logged more than 10,000 hours of work in projects in Indiana and Ohio.
