Mi tierra–Homeland is a multimedia project designed to engage your students in informed discussions on immigration, cultural identity, Spanish in the United States, and human dignity through music, narrative, videos, and innovative classroom activities.

The work consists of 8 chapters, each containing a personal narrative by writer and singer-songwriter David Lindes that explores a facet of his experience as a first-generation Guatemalan immigrant. 

Each chapter is included in both Spanish and English, and is accompanied by an original song, deepening the narrative's power to engage, and the student's ability to understand the Latino immigrant experience through this intimate first-hand account.
