María Guadalupe Rodríguez is native of Nahuatzen, Michoacan, located in the North of the state, and which means “place where it freezes”. The Chichimecas are considered the founders of the town named Yahuani, and their origins date back to the second half of the XVI century. Nahuatzen’s main handicrafts are wood carved objects, embroidered tablecloths, blouses, napkins and shawls made in a back strap loom. The term “Purepecha” comes from the “p’urhé” “people” or “person”. The Purépecha culture is known to be a culture that has sustained more strongly than others, due the existence of a bigger population and the continuous practice of their customs. It is among the most important societies of the Mesoamerican post-classical period. Their origins come from a pre-Conquest mix of chichimeca, Nahuatl and pretarasco groups who lived in the riversides and islands of Lake of Pátzcuaro at the end of the XII century. There is a hypothesis about their origin that talks about a migration from Peru to Michoacan. This is a traditional Purépecha costume for men, with red, green and black embroidery. Made of manta cotton.
