A mural story


students in front children mural in oaxaca

Dr. Carmen Rivera and some of the Fredonia students during the Oaxaca Program in 2012. They are in front of a mural painted by the children of the native community of S. Tomás Jalieza, depicting places in the area. The children were directed in this project by Omar Núnez Méndez from the Instituto Ollin. Fredonia guests went to help the children weekly in their work. Once the project is done, it will include labels identifying places and things in the native tongue, zapoteco, to help the children learn the language.
