The Otomí are the 5th largest Indigenous population in Mexico, and like most other indigenous peoples, live in poverty and marginalization. Is common to find mostly women and children in their traditional lands (central altiplano of Mexico), while men had migrated to cities and the US. Durham has seen an increase of this community in the past 10 years. With them their language, traditions (fabric and paper making), and now families are coming with them. 30 min.
