Binni Záa - The folk of the clouds

Our culture

Binni Záa - "The folk of the cloud" that is the way Zapotecans were known, being one of the most developed Mesoamerican cultures during the precolumbian era.

"Clouds born"

Our Origins

Unlike most native cultures, Zapotecan had no oral tradition to explain their migration. They believed they were born directly from the clouds, such as a legitimate offspring from the gods. Embracing this cosmovision of a folklore that dates from the primigenious darkness, we consider the beginning of life as a spiritual event. Záa alludes to the origin in a natural, organic way and predicates the eternal celebration.
