Chano Bats´i K´op

Chano Bats´i K´op is Tsotsil for "Aprenda Tsotsil" or "Learn Tsotsil." Of course, I am currently in Zapatista rebel territory learning this Mayan language. For those who aren´t familiar with the Zapatistas, there are plenty of sources out there. MKristin Bricker and I, for example, wrote a piece called Zapata Vive y La Lucha Sigue which I translated into Spanish under the title Dos Gringos en Territorio Rebelde.

Kristin is currently blogging for Left Turn Magazine.
Meanwhile, what follows will be a series of posts on my experiences learning Tsotsil in a Zapatista Autonomous School.
