The Rarámuri
15 March, 2020
Elohim Church is at the top of the Tarahumara Mountains in a community called Huisuchi. The Rarámuri are a group of indigenous people of the Americas living in the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. The Rarámuri weave artisan baskets called, “Wares” and they come to Elohim, a Christian church lead by David Quiñonez and Claudia Quiñonez in exchange of food and pantry items. Some women walk up to 6 hours to reach the church and exchange their Wares for some corn and other food products. Wares are baskets generally used to store tortillas, but can be used to store any kind of items. Every purchase will help support the Rarámuri in the Huisuchi Community.
