Learn about the forces of nature associated with each day in the sacred calendar, or Cholq’ij, and see a display of indigenous plants that promote health and wellness. Try out hands-on gallery activities and listen to a special audio performance created by Ernesto Olmos and Miguel Martinez to tell the story of the Cholq’ij.
Great for all ages–snacks and juice available. Admission is free. See you there! This project has been supported by a grant from the Creative Work Fund.
