The indigenous inhabitants of this small town live off the land and practice the traditional hand crafts that have been passed down through generations of forefathers. Here they celebrate the "Pachamama," or mother earth, who bestows on them her many precious gifts and allows them to continue their dignified and ancient way of life.
