In this session, Margarita Fuerez, former Tandana Foundation scholarship recipient and current staff member, will share about the history and current fashions for indigenous Kichwa people from Otavalo, Ecuador. Hear an explanation of what each article of clothing means, and learn about the role embroidery has played in shaping the economy in Imbabura province. During the demonstration, Margarita will share how you can put on manillas (bracelets) and cintas (hair wrap) using items you can find in your own home to get a sense of what getting ready every morning looks like for Kichwa women. Upon registering you will receive recommendations of what to have on hand if you plan to participate in the demonstration.
Margarita will teach this session in Spanish, and there will be an English Interpreter present.
