My family and I invite you to join us in our hometown, Teotitlán del Valle, for a unique exploration of our Zapotec culture, community and traditions during the annual Día de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead. Together we will honor our ancestors, create cultural connections, and explore Oaxaca’s artistic diversity. You will experience life today in Teotitlán del Valle and our neighboring towns, visit artist studios and historic sites, share meals and participate in our festival preparations along with us. We will explore Zapotec heritage and history, and consider how the modern Zapotec identity is shaped by centuries-old customs. There will be ample time for independent excursions in the village and in Oaxaca City, including a private visit to my exhibition at the Museo Textil. I look forward to welcoming you to my home in Oaxaca. ~ Porfirio Gutierrez
Throughout the year we'll offer specialty tours for small groups and keep you posted on events you might be interested in. Let us know when you're interested in visiting Oaxaca and we'll help you plan around holidays, festival days or peak travel seasons.
