The Man Who Wrote The Book
Wabash students met
the man who wrote the book on the language spoken by the indigenous people
of Chiapas. Literally.

Theater, gave an insiders view of the language during a talk at
Na Bolom library and spent time with students in several different venues.
Laughlin is the editor of the only dictionary of the tzotzil language
us words in tzotzil, Laughlin invited us to the theater for rehearsal
and even taught several in the group the posh ritual practiced
in Chamulan villages.
