Galicia is a community with strong agricultural and fishing traditions. Spoken language has played an important role in passing down features of the local culture. In this spirit, teachers and students selected the carnival figure O Merdeiro and practices related to fishing, oral poetry and music to discover the significance of their living heritage and study Galician language and literature, geography and history, music and visual arts at school. Students described the overall experience as an emotional journey.
