Culture classes are a really special and unique experience offered by local indigenous women here at Small Change 4 Big Change. The women will tell you about their tradition of weaving, how young people meet and get married, and will serve a traditional lunch (or dinner). We encourage the local people that they are entitled to earn fair wages instead of the average of $3US/day for weavers and $8US/day for farmers, and it’s a great reminder to the women when they have the chance to teach a class about their beautiful culture. You will also have the opportunity to shop at our women’s cooperative, IX (which means Woman in the local dialect of Kaqchikel).
