Death and Life in the Sierra Nororiental of Puebla
Tiltik put together the works they had done these past three years, regarding the subject of death and life. Then Tonaltzin, our textile arts workshop, embroidered some of the works. And @Bambú Maya (our bamboo workshop), with the help of @Barra de Marcos, framed the works. The exposition resulted in a collection of works that highlight what the Nahuat culture means to the people living it. The inauguration of the exposition was marked by a ceremony in which we asked for help from the ancestors, so that the artists from Tiltik are able to gather the support they need in order to keep on learning and growing as artists. The inauguration was attended by the cultural authorities of the state: the Secretary of Culture in Puebla; the secretary of the Institute of Indigenous Peoples from Puebla; and the founder of Tijiohtli AC, among others.
