NAME: Sofia De Jesus, March participant
“It’s very important to us and especially in Mexico City because it’s losing a lot of its culture, children don’t want to speak (an indigenous language) because they’re embarrassed. So this event we do, this festival is for that, so that children don’t feel embarrassed. It’s culture, to preserve what we have, we have to look after it.”

They share a wide range of cultures, customs and languages
Nearly 70% of the indigenous population lives in poverty
