In the year 2000, I decided to stop working as a wage slave for an enginnering company and do something positive with my life. This study is my way of leaving a clear memory of these Mexican indigenous peoples.

The Mexican Indigenous Textile project documents the traditional dress of Mexico’s Indigenous people. This effort began in 2000 and is on going. The idea is to leave a solid field based ethnographic- historical work of the first 15 years of the 21 st century.

Our Challenge

Visit and document as many villages as possible. Be non political and support indigenous groups in their efforts to preserve and defend thier rights to exist.


When not in the field , develop other sources of information and ways to present these forgotten people to the international community
