A trip through various indigenous radio stations in Mexico:
Chiapas, Sonora, Chihuahua, Oaxaca, Nayarit and Baja California.
A series dedicated to indigenous radios. In the course of six episodes we get to know, through bilingual speakers and local music, the idiosyncratic aspects of multiple regions of Mexico and the rich multiculturalism of indigenous cultural radios, which are in many regions the only existing means of communication and interaction.
To show the importance of this medium, we visit indigenous cultural radios from Copainalá, Chiapas, to Etchojoa, Sonora; from Guachochi, Chihuahua, to Jamiltepec, Oaxaca; and Jesus Maria, Nayarit, to San Quentin, Baja California. In these places the important and supporting work of the National Institute of Indigenous Peoples (INPI) stands out.
Let’s hope that the radio never turns off, that never ceases to sound.
