Favorite Quote:
“My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can loose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.”

A Jalq'a woman finishes her traditional weaving, its wool from her sheep and color from natural plant dyes. As her daughter gazes on, the mother shares her art with us, the white strangers.
