Guelaguetza Intercultural

La Guelaguetza, is an annual indigenous cultural event that takes place in the city of Oaxaca, as well as in nearby villages. The celebration centers on traditional dancing in costume in groups, and includes parades complete with indigenous walking bands, native food, and statewide artisanal crafts such as prehispanic-style textiles. Each traje and dance usually has a local indigenous historical and cultural meaning. Although the celebration is now an important tourist attraction, it also retains deep cultural importance for the peoples of the state and is important for the continuing survival of these cultures.

Please join us in celebrating La Guelaguetza for the first time in Hillsboro,OR.
