Ancient Mexico was a hotbed of language mixing. Aztecs and Maya spoke completely unrelated languages, but a Mesoamerican linguistic mindmeld tied them together in surprising ways. Here's the grammar. Subscribe for language: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=NativLang Follow my progress or become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=584038 My last video looked at the role of Aztec (Nahuatl) and Maya (Chontal) in the conquest of Mexico. This time, we learn the grammar of these languages. I'll start with the things that stood out to me about Chontal Maya and Classical Aztec pronunciation, nouns, verbs, prepositions, alignment and basic sentence structure. Stick with me through that, and you'll earn a reward big enough to satisfy the grammatical cravings of almost any language nerd. After you understand their differences, step back to see their strange sameness. Mesoamerica is a Sprachbund, an area where languages shared the same space for so long that they ended up developing many of the same features. Not just basic things like borrowing the word for "chocolate", I'm talking entire linguistic structures here. I'll consider a few of these features and close with what I find so intriguing about this language area. This is a bit of a change from recent videos. Let's see if you enjoy digging into more of the grammar behind my linguistic tales. ~ CREDITS ~ Voice, art and animation by Josh from NativLang.

Vilma, our Maternal Child Health Program Manager, returns to teach us how to say "let's read!" in Tz'utujil. Tz'utujil is the local Mayan language spoken by the people of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala and its surrounding communities. The mainly coffee-farming families of these areas face many challenges, including food insecurity, lack of access to health and education, and limited economic opportunity. Pueblo a Pueblo's mission is to address these issues through integrated community and school-based programs. Learn more at: www.puebloapueblo.org

Maya glyphs aren't just Mesoamerican eye candy. They're a working writing system! Unlike the thousands of logograms encountered in your journey so far, the Maya syllabary lets you combine a very limited number of syllables into a block to write a word. With a few tricks, you can even use those syllables for more complicated sound patterns, like words that end in a consonant. That's not all Mayan writing can do! There are logographs, logographs plus syllables, logographs plus sound hints (phonetic complements) that invite Maya scribes to indulge in all kinds of creative and inventive patterns.

This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches students about the Age of Exploration’s “discovery” of the “New World.” This lesson focuses on the causes of the Age of Exploration, the competition for the development of trade and colonization that took place between European, and some of the explorers and key events involved. Students are also introduced to some of the ramifications for the Native Americans who came into contact with these early explorers. Content includes: • Causes of the Age of Exploration: feudalism, the Crusades, the Renaissance, and the Three G’s of Exploration • Technological advances: astrolabe, compass, quadrant, and carracks • Mercantilism • Three G’s of Exploration: Glory, Gold and God • Portugal and Henry the Navigator’s early explorations of Africa • Columbus, Queen Isabella, King Ferdinand and the Voyage of 1492, as well as subsequent journeys • Amerigo Vespucci • Cortes and the Aztecs • Treaty of Tordesillas • Conquistadors • Pizarro and the Inca • Spanish colonies • Cultural exchange between the Natives and Europeans • Columbian Exchange • The Northwest Passage: England, France, and the Dutch Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics and Social Studies Academy’s lessons, this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans, worksheets, smartboard files and activities, are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. As a social studies teacher, I have often looked for good YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens.

The poem "Turtle and Tree" from Jose Arguelles showed me a giant lesson for life! Time is ART! Time is how you experience it and what you do with it. Do you choose to see time as beauty, as a frequency in balance with nature, than it will present itself this way to you Am receiving all kind of spiritual messages about the Tree of Life (Kabbalah), the Mayan Tzolkin Calender, and the Ascended Masters. The Kabbalists developed the concept of The Tree of Life into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a "map" of Creation. After the energy of creation has condensed into matter it is thought to reverse its course back up the Tree until it is once again united with its true nature. Thus the Kabbalist seeks to know himself and the universe as an expression of God, and to make the journey of Return by stages charted by the Sephiroth, until he has come to the realisation he sought. More info: http://www.kosmic-kabbalah.com/ More and more people know about the Mayan prophecy and their unique way to deal with Time. The ancient Mayan culture of Yucatán was very advanced in its knowledge of the time cycles. They knew things that we only discovered recently by means of modern technology. It seems the Maya were able to look at our solar system from above. The calendar they designed is the most accurate calendar in the world. Not once did it have to be adjusted, contrary to our Gregorian calendar The Mayan Tzolkin Calendar of 260 days marks each day with its own special energy. This is precisely what many people feel: every day is different, even if you plan, fill and spend them in exactly the same way. Also, each month/Moon has its own energy and totem animal. More info: http://www.mayatzolkin.com and http://www.2012theodyssey.com/articles-inka.html Ascended Master - a being who has become Self-Realized and serves humanity; a being who has raised his/her vibration to a sustained frequency of light.He/she can come and go at will from the earth plane without the Birth//Death cycle. Self-Realization - the awareness of our complete and indivisible union with God, which we are. This also means that the ego-self has come to know itself so clearly, so lovingly, so wisely that it is no longer run by the Shadow. When one is in the Illumined State or Self-Realized, there ceases to be any more inner or outer drama. The personal ego-self has surrendered fully and willingly into the loving embrace of the Soul More info: http://www.greatdreams.com/masters/ascended-masters.htm

During my stay in Mexico in November 11 one of the most notable days there was the day trip to the Mayans. The first thing that really set the mood for the whole day was the Tour Guide. The man was a walking contradiction, his almost "un-understandable", overwhelmingly Mexican accent was a deception for the level of his understanding of the language. His poor presentation was a bad cover to the book that was some really deep ideas, extremely educated understanding of the entire time-line and generally the experience of a Historian. It was hard to listen to him without taking breaks however. The Tour on the one hand made me feel good, and appreciative of an ancient culture. Even happy at first that they seemed to be doing really well and they are surviving despite the odds etc. On the other hand, as the tour progressed, I began to think about how this was just a commercialization of a people that had no place in modern society. Their traditional way of life simply had no place in this modern world, and so, like many old cultures around the world had they had to evolve. The Maya that went on, simply became Mexicans of Mayan descent, took on regular jobs and became assimiliated into the mould of a modern 'man'. This is a little bit sad, but yet I'd personally take this way. What really mad me sad was what happened with the ones that tried to stay behind. To live the way that their ancestors used to, to retain those values. Their inability to truly sustain themselves the way that they could centuries ago has made them reliant on Tourism, in other words they have become actors in a way. Their previous lifestyle was only sustainable in so far as the interest to their culture from the past. I have seen this virtually in every country that I have been to -- culture being artificially kept alive, or even romanticised for the sake of tourism. Either way, the Mayan's were clearly a civilization that we could learn a lot from and regardless of their current applicability to modern society, i'm grateful to the ancestors of these great people for showing us a glimpse of the living past.

Growing up Asian American really contributed to how I work as a teacher, as well as the teacher struggles I have. Of course being a first year teacher contributed to my struggles, but how I grew up also plays a huge role. More specifically, growing up Korean American, I have found I am quite more reserved as a teacher and have a difficult time conversing with anyone older than me! Can anyone relate? :) All in all, thankful for how God has raised me. Proud to be able to immerse into two different cultures :) Follow me!

The Maya Mobile, a 48-foot truck designed as an archeological site, travels to schools within the Los Angeles Unified School District, teaching students about trade and cultural development of the Maya, Aztec and Inka as well as China, the Ottoman Empire and Renaissance Italy. It is designed to integrate with the seventh-grade curriculum and the state standards for history/social science. The program works with seventh-grade students for approximately three weeks at each school and included free bus transportation for tours of LACMA's collections of medieval and renaissance art. Ancient World Mobile, LACMA's traveling studio and classroom is dedicated to teaching sixth-grade students in Los Angeles County public schools about art of the ancient world. Students explored living a virtuous life, the honoring of ancestors, and funerary art of ancient Egypt, China, India, and Rome. Art workshops are held on the Ancient World Mobile where students sketch motifs on tiles that are later fired at LACMA. Buses are provided for students and their teachers to visit LACMA to see and discuss related artworks in our galleries.
