Oaxaca, More than Fashion, A Place of Rootedness and Identity: Video

I am an admirer of Eric Mindling who has, over his 30-year relationship with Oaxaca, documented her people with glorious photography, and introduced many travelers to regions far off-the-beaten path. Thank you for this beautiful tribute to life, the grandparents, culture, survival and identity. It gives us pause to think about whether we are sagebrush or tumbleweed — and what we appreciate. I hope you enjoy and share.

  11. WOW, This is the most moving, articulate and insightful talk I have ever heard for the preservation of history, family and culture. In this case Oaxacan, Mexican, but it applies to any culture. How eloquently and sensitively stated. It brought tears to my eyes, not just for its truths, but also for the erosion of culture, family and traditions in the world today.
