Cultural visit to the Sierra Mixe
Due to the difficult access issues to the region of the Sierra Mixe, permits are required for community travel including cultural visits with the an educational intention. We can access activities such as lectures and workshops aiming to educate visitors about the activities of the producers (artisans, embroiders, potters and pulqueros) The rhythms and local time determine the dynamics of visits. Times of activies will adapt for the ritual and festive duties, we cannot give a schedule as such. Learning exchanges with the Mixe region are a rich experience you can not miss!
Visits can include:
- looms cotton shawls and overcoats
- workshop dyed shawls
- embroidered blouses and sashes
- pottery workshop (red clay)
- greenhouse tomato and vegetables
- still (making mezcal)
- cordage (manufacture of products with ixtle)
There will be a small welcome to Mixe introduction and a cooking show.
