Kakchikel Women Share Guatemalan Traditions

BCD’s philosophy is ‘People are Culture’...experience this for yourself with our account of a day with a family of Kakchikel women of the Guatemalan village of Santiago Zamora. Savor a meal of tasty local dishes and enjoy a tutorial in traditional Mayan weaving, with a look at the brocade technique on the backstrap loom & efforts to convert racist attitudes toward indigenous toward traditional dress to into revenue streams. Meet the founder of a program to teach kids about traditional crafts & identity.
