Women Embroidering Photograph ©Juan Negrín 1983



Embroidery (xuiyá) is an art practiced by Wixaritari women who pass on their family patterns from generation to generation. According to many, the brightly colored symbols on their clothes enable them to be recognized by their ancestors as they travel on pilgrimages or perform the yearly cycle of ceremonies. In recent times some western patterns have been introduced and are also used.
