1) NBC Latino: This radio station is a lifeline for speakers of indigenous Mexican + Central American languages


"Radio Indígena" (indígena means indigenous in Spanish) is one of the first indigenous Mexican radio stations in the United States. The community-run station boasts 40 hours of original programming every week, broadcasting music and talk shows in a handful of indigenous languages including Mixteco, Zapoteco and Triqui, as well as in Spanish. The station is a welcome cultural lifeline for thousands of farm workers who speak Mixteco or other indigenous Central American languages. It's hosted and run by the Mixteco Indígena Community Organizing Project (MICOP), a nonprofit formed to provide health outreach, humanitarian support and language interpretation to this underserved community. If you're interested in learning more, want to listen to the station, or join the radio community (they're also looking for volunteer DJs), visit the website: http://mixteco.org/radio.
