She hopes the Mazahua language doesn’t die. She says she would like her children to continue to speak the language.

She has two kids. One of them understands but does not speak. She would like to teach the one year old girl to speak [Mazahua] so that they can preserve the tradition and the origin where they come from since their grandparents.

Flor tell us that she speaks Mazahua with her aunts because they are old enough so that their only language is Mazahua. She doesn’t speak Mazahua in the city because that’s where she works but back in her hometown she tries to speak it as much as possible.

      Lola Andere, Mazahua (español)

      My mother tongue is Mazahua. Ever since my parents taught me, I have kept on speaking it.

      I love speaking Mazahua. I combine both, Spanish and Mazahua, when I speak.

      Very few people of my family still know how to speak Mazahua, the majority of them speak Spanish.

      I would like to show [this video] to other people, my nephews and my grandchildren.
