Performing a Mayan Ritual in Mexico


Mexico, Americas

Antonio Hernández López, a traditional herbalist, performs an indigenous Mayan ritual with María Gómez Díaz, who prays in the Tsotsil language for a successful Festival de la Paz y la Diversidad Cultural. The May event in San Cristóbal de las Casas in southern Mexico was a celebration of peace and cultural diversity. Hernández López poured pox, a traditional corn-based liquor, on dried corn, flowers and candles as an offering to the land and the Roman Catholic virgins and saints.
