Whistles In The Mist: Whistled Speech In Oaxaca

Season 2, Episode 10 of 10

The Chinantecan people of mountainous northern Oaxaca, Mexico, speak by whistling as well as by talking. We visit their isolated community and see for ourselves how they use whistled speech to supplement-and sometimes replace-spoken speech.
