Indigenous Culture Runs Strong in the Canyons
Norawas de Raramuri - Non-Profit - www.norawas.com
These three languages, Raramuri, Spanish and English, here express the basis and purpose of Norawas, a nonprofit organization working on behalf of the indigenous Running-People of Mexico's Copper Canyon region. All three express our commitment to friendship and suggest the important alliance and reciprocity of these neighboring cultures.
Based in the USA, Norawas de Raramuri works to support and reinvigorate an ancient and unique running culture that has endured, under increasing stress, from long before the arrival of Europeans in Central America. Participation in this multicultural friendship now extends around the world.
We support international and local races based in the region's Urique and Batopilas Canyons and related programs created to celebrate and encourage Raramuri running. Norawas works to provide maize, seed corn, and cash awards for participating Raramuri runners, men and women alike. In this way we offer both nutrition during drought and support for a tradition of small farms necessary to both physical and cultural survival.
Free Range Studios could help us get and keep our message in front of our 2,000+ supporters.
