Greetings--Our group is focused on Indigenous cultural & political events. We hit the pow wows and film festivals as much as possible. The group has a specific focus on Guatemalan/Mexican/Indigenous American art, spirituality, dance & textiles.

We go to the Guelaguetza (Oaxacan Indigenous Dance/Cultural Fair) in Santa Cruz and fun events like concerts & fairs. We love to go to dances, Day of the Dead, Cinco de Mayo in Oakland, and other street fairs and demonstrations for human rights, environmental causes, to stop Keystone XL Pipeline and for social justice.

This Meet-up is great for people who love to view & upload photos of indigenous Textiles/crafts--Please check out our photos.

We never charge our members to attend a meet-up, unless it is a class, in which case, there will be a reasonable charge to pay the instructor and to pay for materials. Of course, if we are going to a concert or show, you will probably have to pay at the door to get in (but there is no charge from this group).

Guatemalan or Mexican backstrap weaving/brocade lessons will be coming at a future date. Join us!

Hola--Este grupo se enfoca en los eventos culturales, políticos y espirituales de indígenas americanos y guatemalteco/mexicanos. Vamos a los festivales de Cine, ceremonia del Año Nuevo Mexica, el festival de Baile ´Etnico, y mucho más.

Vamos a la Guelaguetza (feria indígena Oaxaqueña), los pow wows, el Día de los Muertos, museo y otros lugares donde se exhiben textiles y artes indígenas. Tambi´n vamos a los eventos divertidos como ferias y conciertos. Y por supuesto vamos a las manifestaciones por la justicia social, el ambiente y los derechos humanos.

Este grupo es buenísimo para gente que le gusta ver y subir fotos de los eventos, pow wows, bailes, y las artesanías indígenas--vean nuestras fotos.

Nunca cobramos por asistir a un meet-up, al menos que sea una clase, y en ese caso habrá un precio razonable para pagarle a la maestra y pagar los materiales. Y bueno, por supuesto si vamos a un concierto o show, probablemente tendrás que pagar tu entrada en la puerta (pero no habrá cobro de este grupo).

Habrá clases de telar de cintura y brocado estilo de Guatemala o de México proximamente. ¡Unete!
