Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

1st Commercial and Cultural Wixarika Village Nayarit Expo in Sayulita

The Magical Town of Sayulita’s main plaza will be the site of the 1st Commercial and Cultural Wixarika Village Nayarit Expo from November 24-27, 2016, an event organized by the National Commission for the Development of Indigenous People (CDI by its acronym in Spanish).

“I’m very happy, grateful and motivated by how the doors have been opened for us to present the culture and the handicrafts of our indigenous villages,” said Sergio González García, delegate for the CDI in Nayarit. “We’re showcasing a lot of our culture with the artisans through productive projects such as this that help supplement their family income.”

There will be 48 groups of Nayarit artisans for a total of 180 persons; the participants are mainly Huicholes and Coras, but also some Mexicaneros. Besides the artisans there will be musicians and traditional doctors present, as well.

“For us this is one more opportunity that we’ve been given because it’s the first time we’re going to be here,” commented Erminia Carrillo, an artisan from Huanacaxtle. “We’re grateful for this kind of support because we feel we’re receiving more recognition and we can sell our merchandise. We have plenty of time to tell the tourists all about our culture.”

There will be several booths set up during the expo for the different artistic and cultural presentations such as music, dancing and conferences by ethnic artists and other performers, including the Ballet Mexcaltitán.

Among the products showcased by the artist will be beaded handicrafts, yarn art, traditional dolls, backpacks and purses.

This event is held with the support of the Bahía de Banderas City Council, the Nayarit State Government via the Secretariat of Tourism and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Mexico City hosts a similar expo on a national level; in fact, on November 18th it will be celebrating its fourth year. This is where the CDI first got the idea of bringing it to the state level, thus proving the Riviera Nayarit can certainly host the national version in upcoming years.
