Honour Our Pueblo Existence (HOPE)
We worked with a Pueblo in Northern New Mexico that has witnessed a gradual decline in the usage of their Native language and customs. Our Sponsors fear their language and traditions are on the brink of extinction. Our project aimed to assist our sponsors, Honor Our Pueblo Existence and Flowering Tree Permaculture Institute, in supplementing the existing Tewa curriculum by developing a platform through which the people of Hopeville can learn Tewa vocabulary and begin to connect with their heritage. Our team developed a private website containing culturally relevant videos narrated in Tewa. To fully utilize the platform and increase the number of fluent Tewa speakers, the Pueblo might have to consider adapting how language is taught in the community.
