In Tilantongo – Conversations from Indigenous Mexico; Conversaciones desde el México indigena, Phil and Kathy Dahl-Bredine bring perspectives and insights from Oaxaca, where they have lived with and learned from indigenous Mixtec people since 2001. This bilingual program features interviews with villagers, educators, environmental advocates, historians, and more.

In Program 2, For the Love of the Earth and of the Community of Respect, a young Mixtec couple explain why they returned from the city to campesino life in the tiny community of Yukuyoko, in Tilantongo. Agustín Leon Santos recounts how his father instilled in him the love of the earth, while Bertha Santiago Cruz explains why she prefers the values that reign in this village over those of the cities that imitate the values of Western civilization.
