In the high mountains of the Altiplano, villagers continue a tradition of celebration and offerings to Pachamama, a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. This celebration takes place at the beginning of the year and is infused with a sense of gratitude and blessing for mother earth. Through song and dance, visits to quinoa and potato fields, Bolivia continues to keep their cultural practices vibrant and alive.
Creating unique textiles is also a way of life and part of Bolivian culture that has deep roots. This type of artisan work dates back to the pre-Inca era. The knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation making these artisans incredibly skilled in their craft.
