zapotec writing

I am grateful to the National Endowment for the Arts for a 2015 Literature Translation Fellowship to translate into English poetry by indigenous Mexican poets.

Photo above: This carved stela, at Monte Albán, Oaxaca, is a fine example of Zapotec writing, still only partly deciphered, 1995.
Photo to right: These spiny trees, common around the city of Juchitán, in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, gave the city its name, 2000.
