TV Malintzin, from Puebla and Tlaxcala states, announces the inauguration of a series of short video programs featuring the oral tradition of the Nahuatl-speaking communities from this region of Mexico. The videos are available at: http://www.youtube.com/user/TVMalintzin. 

Mainly in Nahuatl, the series currently includes traditional narrative and oral history. Future programs are planned that will incorporate poetry and other genres of interest to members of the communities and to investigators and students of the Nahuatl language and culture. 

The mission of TV Malintzin consists in the compilation and dissemination of this material of literary and artistic merit, founded over hundreds of years of creative language expression, now in gradual decline and likely in the future to be in danger of significant erosion in the highland communities of Puebla and Tlaxcala, along with the Nahuatl language itself.

The following programs are now available:
(1) Bienvenida al canal TV Malintzin 
(2) Entrevista con el Mtro. Carmen Zepeda: A�o 1923 (in Spanish)
(3) In tomin
(4) Coyotl huan Tlacuatl
(5) In Pillo (primera versi�n)
(6) Tesoro escondido de la Revoluci�n
(7) Quehaceres cuando era ni�a
(8) Historia de lo que pas� despu�s de la matanza de 1968
(9) La se�ora y su amante
(10) El hombre que no quer�a poner ofrenda
(11) El cielo emborregado
(12) Historias de Chalma
(13) La mujer nahual
(14) In Pillo (segunda versi�n)
(15) El nevero de la Malintzin
(16) El hombre que no cre�a en las mujeres piedra encantadoras
(17) El compadre de la muerte
(18) Pastorela: La adoraci�n de los reyes.
