Hispanic Heritage Month - Interconnecting Worlds

From the Library of Congress:

Interconnecting Worlds: Weaving Community Narratives, Andean Histories & the Library’s Collections. In this guide, with resources in English, Spanish and Quechua, we seek to facilitate research about Andean peoples, cultures, and knowledges through the themes of language, storytelling and literature, visual arts, and music.

The Andean region encompasses the geographic areas in Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Perú, and parts of Argentina, Chile, and Venezuela. While Andean communities are distinct, they also share a history of both resistance and resilience. This guide aims to reflect this shared history by weaving relevant materials from the Library with interviews from Andean and Quechua visual artists, musicians, scholars, educators, poets, and community members.

From discussions about textiles and music to poetry readings and more, our Narratives from the Ayllu (family and community) Interview Series serves to preserve and share diverse community perspectives.
