(In Spanish with English subtitles) 

En este episodio iniciamos en el East Village, en el legendario teatro La MaMa E.T.C., donde encontramos a un grupo de niños totonacas de la región de Veracruz, en México presentandose con la obra Migraciones Vocales del compositor Tareke Ortiz. Tareke tiene un interesante planteamiento en cómo la comunicación va más allá de lenguaje.
 
De ahí, Ligia Jaquez nos lleva a reflexionar sobre la importancia de participar en el Censo para que nosotros los Latinos seamos más tomados en cuenta en la creación de políticas públicas.
 
Y finalmente en la acogedora libreria McNally Jackson Books en Soho Carmen Boullosa entrevista a Bill Santiago con motivo del lazamiento de su libro Pardon my Spanglish. Este newyorquino, descendiente de puertorriquenos habla de las virtudes del Spanglish al que defiende como una nueva lengua.

We begin this episode in the East Village's legendary La MaMa ETC, where a group of Totonaca dancers from the School of Flyers at El Tajin’s Indigenous Arts Center of El Tajín, Mexico, performs "Vocal Migrations” by composer Tareke Ortíz.  Through this multimedia show, we see how communication goes beyond just language.
 
Then, Ligia Jáquez from the Census Bureau has us reflect on the importance of Latinos participating in the census in order to be accounted for more precisely when public policies are made.
 
And, finally, at the cozy McNally Jackson Books in Soho, Carmen Boullosa interviews Bill Santiago, as he launches his book "Pardon My Spanglish."  This New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent speaks of the virtues of Spanglish, which he defends as a new language.
