Insight into the Tarahumaras life, Mexico

19



The introduction text is how a priest in 1600 descripted the Tarahumaras.

The Indians “Tarahumara” live at great distance, separated from each other and scattered. They prefer to live in ravines and canyons and in cold, inhospitable mountains where they have dwellings.
Lupe and Miguel raised five childern (three boys, two girls) in their cave dwelling with a wide open view of the Batopilas valley.
Now in their 50’s, they occupy their time with daily chores and keeping the fire of the cooking stove burning to prepare food for the frequent visits of their childern who live scattered among the mountains.
During my four day visit I had plenty of time to think about the real life.
