Roots & Voices: Nahua Folk Tales. In Nahuatl and Spanish, this compilation by Gobi Stromberg, establishes a dialogue between two forms of artistic expression of the indigenous communities in the Balsas River basin in the state of Guerrero. It features reproductions of paintings on amate bark-paper, on the one hand, and on the other, a series of five folk tales issuing from the rich oral tradition of these Nahuatl-speaking communities. Together, they set up a literary and pictorial game, which reveals the cultural wealth of an indigenous language and the artistic relevance of Nahua painters.
