Mi Triqui: Life in Three Languages

Like many migrant children from Mexico, Bernadina Hernández came to the United States without speaking a word of English. She didn’t speak Spanish either, only Triqui — the Indigenous language of her pueblo in Oaxaca. Now she’s a leader in her community and the breadwinner of her family.

This short documentary takes a look at the work Bernadina does for Indigenous families, primarily Triquis from the state of Oaxaca, in her hometown of Hollister, CA.

Bermadina is also a member of La Unión Indígena, an organization serving Indigenous-language speakers in many of central California’s agricultural communities.

This documentary was part of Raquel Maria Dillon’s master’s thesis at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Raquel now works as a video journalist for the Associated Press. Follow her on Twitter at @RaquelAPLA.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re reposting “Mi Triqui” in hopes that more people see it. Help us share Bernadina’s amazing story by passing along this video to family and friends. A special thanks to Raquel for making this video available to the public again.

12-year-old girl: I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society: You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
16-year-old girl: I'm pregnant.
Society: How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
20-year-old woman: I'm a single mother with an infant son.
Society: You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
33-year-old woman: I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
Society: You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
45-year-old woman: I just had my first child.
Society: Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
60-year-old woman: I haven't had any children.
Society: Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
