Language Policy and Planning in Mexico: Indigenous Language Policy

G. G. Patthey-Chavez

Mexico's multilingual and multicultural character predates European
contact. In its long history, it has generated many communicative
challenges as well as interesting language planning efforts to deal
with them (Heath 1972). Most recently, official acknowledgments of
Mexico's multicultural and multilingual character are raising a series
of complex language planning and policy issues even as they are
leading to important constitutional and material gains on the part of
indigenous Mexicans.
