Chiapas is an explosion of sounds, colors and sensations that invite to live and enjoy the magic blended with the rhythm of its music, gastronomy, archeology, modern and folkloric dances that sum up the vast artistic and cultural wealth in our state.
One of its biggest cultural wealth is its ethnic diversity whose customs, language, fiestas, clothing and traditions are acknowledged around the world.
The traditional ethnics that are still in the state of Chiapas and which have Mayan offspring are: Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Tojolabal, Jacalteco, Chol, Kanjobal, Chol, Chuj, Mochó, Cakchiquel, Lacandon, Chiapa, Zoque and Mam.
In an indigenous worldview the earth does not divide and the communal living among them gets merged, as well as the nature does not detach from earth, like this they join until forming one single Ethnic.
The ethnic biodiversity fortifies the popular art of Chiapas which is characterized by its profound pre-Hispanic roots; highlighting that it has not been substantially modified along the time due to the fact that our indigenous towns have been able to preserve customs, traditions, ritual languages, and believes. Consequently they are keeping original elements of their worldview.
