Nenek is based on a crowdsourcing scheme that supports native speakers, indigenous associations, government agencies and researchers in the creation of virtual communities of minority language speakers on the Internet. Nenek includes a set of web tools that enables users to work collaboratively on language documentation tasks, build lexicographic assets and produce new language resources.

D Social Network

Nenek is a monolingual social network for Huastec speakers. This network enables speakers and academics to produce new language resources, to manufacture new resources and publsih them for either controlled or free access.
