Of Corn and God

Tolimán is a small village located in a rural area of the state of Querétaro. This semi-arid zone of the Central Mexican Plateau, at 1,500-2,000 meters above sea level, is inhabited by small indigenous communities nearly self-sufficient from the outside world, where the common language continues to be the pre-Hispanic Otomí.

Here, the synergy between the religion and the ancient traditions linked to corn farming remains the fundamental pillar of society, and still determines the pace and lifestyle of the local population.
