That is why a commission, composed of teachers from the URACCAN Bilwi campus, in conjunction with the education committee of the Regional Council of the North Caribbean Coast, met at the facilities of the Regional Council, to review an instrument that will allow the multiple peoples of the Caribbean Coast to be statistically visible.

According to the statements of teacher Martha Imelda Castro Miranda, chairwoman of the education committee said that "this is a proposal to present at Bluefields on September 16," she said, adding that's why the document was meticulously reviewed, because "everything that has to do with the languages we have in the region needed to be inserted , the peoples we have in the region, even the inclusion of the half-breeds that live here in the region," he argued.
