    Community Event with Nahuat Pipil elders from El Salvador

    When: May 11, 2012

    Location: Brecht Forum, 451 West Street  New York, NY 10014

    Time: 5:30pm - 9:30pm

    Historically, in El Salvador indigenous people have been forced to live in the shadows of a society that discriminates and marginalizes them. With the goal of promoting the ancestral heritage, folk art, traditions, language, ceremonies and elder’s wisdom the original peoples of Nahuizalco, Sonsonate, formed a People’s Council of the Original Nahuat Pipil (CPONPN). In 2010 the CPONPN after an arduous work of lobbing and organizing indigenous communities, the City Council of Nahuizalco passed a Municipal Ordinance of the Rights of The Nahuat Pipil Community of Nahuizalco, the first of its kind in the history of El Salvador.

    Please join El Centro Cultural Techantit, El Concilio Nacional Indígena Binacional Salvadoreño, Friends of Co-Madres and New York Cispes for an evening with Elder Tito Pasín aka Tito Reyes Cuadra a Nahuat Pipil, current Major of the Izalco Commune, to discuss the efforts of the indigenous communities to protect the rights of the indigenous people of El Salvador and to maintain their customs, traditions, language, art, land and natural resources for future generations.

    Elder Tito Pasín is the author of the book “The Izalco’s Common” where he shares several customs, traditions, and food recipes known by the indigenous communities of Izalco.

    En El Salvador, los pueblos originales han vivido en la clandestinidad y el aislamiento dentro de una sociedad que les margina y les descrimina. Con el propósito de promover y revivir nuestra herencia ancestral, arte, cultura, ritos ceremoniales, lenguaje y sabiduría de nuestros abuelos y abuelas, el pueblo originario de Nahuizalco, Sonsonate, formó un Consejo de Pueblos Originarios Nahuat Pipil- CPONPN. En el año 2010, después de un arduo trabajo organizativo y de concientización, El Consejo (CPONPN) logró que se aprobara una Ordenanza Municipal que legitimiza los derechos de las comunidades Nahuat Pipil de Nahuizalco. Esta ordenanza es la primera de su clase en la historia de El Salvador.

    ¡Acompáñenos!
