The eight-episode animated series from Córdoba “Poemas de la Tierra”, by Anok Films, is aimed at boys and girls, and seeks to make visible and spread the indigenous languages spoken in the Argentine territory. It was released on Sunday, July 4 on the public television signal “Pakapaka” and can also be enjoyed via YouTube every Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.
In each episode, boys and girls from indigenous peoples narrate a poem in different languages: Qom, Wichí, Mbyá, Mapuzungun and Quechua. They have the translation into Spanish, so that the different ways of speaking and seeing the world can be known and understood.
“‘Poemas de la Tierra’ is, perhaps, the first series for girls and boys produced in Argentina that deals with indigenous poetry from childhood, in an intercultural key”, is highlighted in a promotional newsletter, which specifies that it is composed of eight animated shorts that aim to make visible and spread the indigenous languages spoken in our territory.
