Recuerdo a Máximo, sentado en una de las subidas más empinadas de San Blas cerca a la esquina de Tandapata. Siempre sonriente haciendo magia con los sonidos de flautas, quenas y charangos, enseñando a los turistas a tocar estos instrumentos andinos. Le pedí una vez que cantara una canción en quechua para enamorarme más de la cultura inca que tanto admiro. . . . . . #cusco #cuscoperu #cuscocity #peru #peruanos #andes #andino #andean #peruvianculture #inca #quechua #music #charango #artista #cantante #singer #traditional #ancestral #portrait #portraitphotography #streetphotography #streetpic #travelphotography #photodocumentary #documentaryphotography #igerscusco #igersperu

Las artesanías de la etnia otomí o ñáhño de las comunidades de Santiago Mexquititlán y San Ildefonso Tultepec en el estado de Querétaro, México, son conocidas por las muñecas de trapo (dänxu) que confeccionan las mujeres. Detrás de estas vistosas muñecas, se encuentran historias de pobreza, de lucha por la supervivencia, de resistencia cultural y de una larga experiencia migratoria de este grupo étnico hacia ciudades, centros turísticos y, en ocasiones, hasta los Estados Unidos. En la mayoría de los casos, el trabajo de las mujeres ñähño se ha convertido en una importante --cuando no la única-- fuente de ingreso para las familias indígenas.

It took so long to realize my calling in life (34 years, in fact). I'm incredibly empathetic, so I studied psychology. I adore language, so I studied Spanish linguistics. And then I found photography and fell in love with that. And now, with my trip to Nicaragua to use my photography to promote an organization that helps educate children in impoverished areas, all of my passions have collided. I've never been more grateful. To help me help the organization, please consider donating at the link found in bio. Even the smallest amount will go a long way to helping both me and the children of Nicaragua.

A long time ago, the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Woman came to Earth and gave the Lakota people a Sacred Pipe and a small round stone. These gifts were to be used in the first rite, Keeping of the Soul, which she taught them. She also said six other rituals would be revealed to them. Then, she left the people saying, "There will be four ages, and I will look in on you once each age. At the end of the four ages, I will return." As she left, she changed from a beautiful maiden into a black buffalo … then a red-brown buffalo … then a yellow buffalo … and finally into a white buffalo. And then, she disappeared into the clouds. The bowl of the pipe she gave the Lakota was made of red stone, representing the Earth. A buffalo head was carved on the bowl, symbolizing all of the four-legged animals of the Earth. The stem was wood and represented all that grows on the Earth. Twelve eagle feathers hung from the place where the bowl joined the stem; this symbolized all the birds. The round stone was made out of the same red earth as the pipe and had seven circles on it representing the seven rites. When a Lakota smokes a sacred pipe, his or her voice is sent to Wakan Tanka - the Great Spirit. A central part of each sacred rite is smoking the sacred pipe. A song first sung by the White Buffalo Calf Woman - and still sung today - begins: With visible breath I am walking ... The smoke from the pipe is the visible breath. - The Sacred Pipe, Black Elk's Account of the Seven Rites of the Oglala Sioux, recorded and edited by Joseph Epes Brown. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildlifephotography #myfeatureshoot #conservation #yourshotphotographer #usa #animals #northamerica #documentaryphotography #photodocumentary #lensculture #nature #ecology #bison #buffalo #nativeamerican #winter

All Secured. A woman makes sure that her child; the eagle hunter’s grandson is safely secure. Photograph by @tariqzaidiphoto #eaglehunter #Mongolia #goldeneagle #horsemen #Kazakh #family #natgeo100contest ⁣ ⁣ Western Mongolia is one of the least densely populated places on the planet. Surrounded by glacier-wrapped mountains, arid plains, barely any trees and temperatures which fall below -40C, life can be brutally hard for the nomadic families who make their homes and tend their cattle here. ⁣ It is also one of the few places where you will still find Kazakh eagle hunters. The ancient art of training a golden eagle to hunt for foxes, marmots and even wolves, may have been practiced for 4,000 years, but is still very much a part of daily life for the families who depend on it for their survival. ⁣ Hunting with eagles is not the only tradition the Kazakh nomads cling to in a rapidly changing Mongolia. With their own language, clothes and customs, this community live by a strong code of unwritten laws which structure an ancient, transient way of life in a stark but beautiful terrain. ©️️️Tariq Zaidi Photography.
