We operate the Mission Del Rey among the Tarahumara Indians. Your purchase of our unique hand-crafted items helps an indigenous family as they work to earn a better standard of living. At the Mission, located in the heart of the Sierra Madre of northern Mexico, the Indian people create hand crafts for sale. We call it “Helping Hands.”
The Tarahumara are a proud people that have endured many hardships. They lead very rough and often difficult lives. They are teetering between their traditional lifestyle and assimilation into the Mexican culture. Unfortunately, they are somewhat stuck between the two and often live hand to mouth. Hunger and exposure are too well known among the people.
By being able to continue their traditional crafts, they preserve their cultural roots and their dignity as they work to provide for their families. Thank you, for having a part in making a difference in their lives.
