Produced by REL Southwest, this video highlights student experiences with New Mexico’s State Seal of Bilingualism-Biliteracy. This seal helps preserve native language and culture in New Mexico by connecting students with their communities, heritage, and cultural identity. In the video, high school students from Cuba and Farmington, New Mexico, describe how they earned the State Seal of Bilingualism-Biliteracy in the heritage languages of Diné (Navajo) and Spanish by taking courses to develop their language proficiency and to learn about history, culture, and tribal government.
