These collections are preserved and made freely available through the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) housed at the library of SOAS University of London.

This project aims to provide a comprehensive documentation of the Southeastern Huastec (HSF) Language by creating a detailed grammatical description, a trilingual Huastec-Spanish-English word list and a collection of texts and video and audio recordings that will cover a variety of genres in various discourse contexts. The intention of this project is to generate resources in support of language maintenance and learning.The HSF, a member of the Mayan language family (Huatecan branch), is spoken by about 1700 people in the region of La Huasteca, northern Veracruz, Mexico. It has not been previously documented or described.
