Description:In this chapter, I endeavor to contribute towards a collective effort to reflect on the evolution and state-of-the-art of language documentation. I reflect on Himmelman (1998) from the perspective of language endangerment and revitalization in Mexico and Central America today. I identify a number of topics that are critical to the practice of language documentation in the region and that in my view were only marginally mentioned in Himmelmann's seminal paper. These topics revolve around the participation, consent, interests and needs of speakers of the very languages that are documented. Notably, I argue that (i) language documentation is critical for language revitalization, (ii) I echo current calls in the community-based research literature for ensuring that language documentation is collaborative, (iii) that to this end, training opportunities for language community members need to increase and (iv) that a concerted effort is needed to develop appropriate ways to ensure informed consent in language documentation.
