Bertha Liduvina, (Betty), Mexican-Canadian intercultural consultant, university instructor, author and songwriter has more than twenty years of experience. Having lived in all three countries, Betty has dedicated her life and her powerful voice to bridging cultures between Mexico and the United States, and between Mexico and Canada.
An interculturalista and international business consultant, she has published articles on: Mexican identity, and Immigration issues and Integration into the Canadian Society. Her books include a text, Negotiating Cultural Barriers: “The Geo-Context”, as well as a highly acclaimed novel and accompanying CD.
Betty’s fascinating novel, Las Hijas de Maíz, combines all her voices in one book: the songwriter, the cross-cultural consultant, and an irreverent intelligence mixed with humor. The novel deals with the journey of seven Mexican women as they navigate through their cultural conditioning, their issues with The Conquest, and the myth of La Malinche. In trying to find their own voices within the myriad voices of Mexico’s schizophrenia, they explore the creation of different personas through a new language and a new voice.
