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.
