Plural Mouths!


This time I bring you a publication that I am very excited to share with you. As i said before, I come from Galicia, from the north of Spain. My house, my home, is a very special place. We are a territory with its own language, literature and identity and it is our duty as a people to take care of it and protect it.

But … are we the only ones? No, in Spain we coexist with what many of us call “Historic Nations” and we have our own identity and culture with years of tradition and history. These communities are three: Galicia, the Basque Country and Catalonia.
