Huipil (1992) HIDVL

Creation stories and rituals--constant reminders of our origins are woven on our huipil along with our present day stories of social, political injustices and racism, the Colorado Sisters, Elvira and Hortencia explain. Huipil, presents these stories, along with traditional music, hand choreography and rap, woven together the way a traditional huipil is woven on a back-strap loom. This is our personal statement of our role in the universe, community, and family, as sisters and as women. Theses stories symbolize our strength and survival.
