This summer I worked for an Indigenous radio station in Guatemala. During this trip I used my experience at WCBN to help this station update much of its equipment. All of this station’s equipment was 20 or 30 years old, so it was in need of fixing, which I was happy to do. Much of my time at the station was also spent with community members interested in preserving their own culture and history. Because of this strong interest I became involved with a historical preservation project in which I spent a lot of time organizing, digitizing and transcribing tapes made during the civil war in the 1980s and 90s. Overall the experience was incredibly rewarding. I met people and had experiences in Guatemala that I will not soon forget.
