Descendents of La Raza celebrate their heritage.

"How far I am from you, homeland,
as I carry in my blood
a bubbling of sunlight
struggle and hope.

In your name, homeland,
and in the name of your sons,
the thousands of dispossessed,
I'll lift my head and fight
as you wanted me to."
Poem taken from Glenn Welker’s website: http://www.indians.org/welker/mayamenu.htm

The oral tradition continues with theater, song, and verse.
