Gente del Sol
Stevie Mack

Invite your students to listen to folk artists of Mexico and Guatemala tell their own stories in this popular three-part series. They will delight in learning about the customs and family traditions that are a source of inspiration for the folk art of the gente del sol (the people of the sun). Your students will relate to the playful images and patterned textiles, which depict everyday life and special events that occur in the villages. Gente del Sol is a series of comprehensive units.
