This animated artistic series, narrated in 68 Mexican indigenous languages, highlights the cultural treasures and heritage behind the tales of an indigenous community rich in traditions that celebrate diversity.
Moved by the loss of her Mayan grandfather, Gabriela Badillo sought to keep the legacy of his language, stories, traditions and customs alive for future generations through this project.
The series seeks to create an inclusive and contemporary project that doesn’t fall into the Mexican “cliché,” but instead represents a search for a reinterpretation of culture through Mexican illustrators, based on the work of authors like Miguel León Portilla, Andrés Henestrosa, Hermenegildo López, Isaac Esau Carrillo Can, Manuel Espinosa Sainos, as well as traditions and stories of oral tradition, revealing the importance of these pieces.
Cost: Included with general museum admission. Members FREE.
