Only Maruchán-Not-Posole-Easy-Peasy-Huevos-Con-Arroz/Frijoles-Basic- Interview

Directions: Find moments during this week when you can start a conversation with your mom/dad/abuelx. It may take you a couple of times to get through this. The idea of the Maruchan Interview is that we’re not trying to get all up in your family’s biznezz but we’re opening up a conversation to learn some basics about their travel here to Chicago. There is a lot we can still learn from their responses. Please come to our next meeting on Saturday, December 10th with this assignment done.

Gracias-  Philámayaye (Lakota) – Tlazohcamati Cenca tlazohcamati (Nahuatl) – A dupe (Yoruba) – yupaychani (Quichua)
