About:

Spanish below:

Colors fill the soul with several hues that are reflected in the exterior of each person; the colors of their soul and the purity of the shades become the values that tell that person’s story and light the inspiration to follow their journey.

The colors that indigenous women weave is a reflection of different people coming together much like the crossing of ideologies, an essential component in achieving radical change in society. Women, weave the colors of everyone, both masculine and feminine energy, with the intention of creating a more colorful world. The patterns and colors become a metaphor for the values of life which reflect society.

The colors ​​are formed foundations that must be followed to achieve the moral objective of each person, and collectively the moral objective of a community. It is fundamental that we invest in our youth and honor the colors within them and teach them about weaving those colors with the ultimate mission being pro-human values because we all deserve rights and social development.

Enough discrimination and ethnocentrism on this land where we are all one. We are all born with beautiful colors and a pure spirit and that we all deserve the same rights regardless of country, race, ethnicity, religion, etc. We are all one and we need to come together with our individual colors to make the world a more colorful place.

Los colores llenaba el alma de varios matices que se reflejan en lo exterior de cada persona; el color del alma y la pureza del matiz se convertirá en los valores que muestran el camino a seguir y así plasmar en la historia de vida la inspiración dada para seguirlo.
Los colores que tejen las mujeres indígenas en sociedad es fundamental para el cruce de ideologías y construcción de vida basada en valores genuinos para lograr cambios radicales en el desarrollo de un país, sin escatimar los matices que se forman dentro del ser masculino para engalanar los colores femeninos para la construcción de un mundo más colorido, en donde los colores forman los valores de vida, reflejandolos dentro de la actualidad social.

Los valores son fundamentos formados que se deben seguir para lograr el objetivo moral de cada persona , por ende el de una sociedad. Fundamentar en los niños y jóvenes es elegir regalo que se les delega, no cabe duda que la visión y misión deben estar relacionados con el color como visión y el valor como misión para llegar a una sociedad más justa en donde todos tienen derechos y obligaciones para el pro del desarrollo humano y social.

Basta de discriminación y etnocentrismo en esta tierra donde todos somos uno, con ese UNO todos tenemos los mismos derechos y obligaciones para con el país, sin importar color, etnia, religión, etc., sino fundamentar en el UNO que somos cimentados con valores para actuar con los colores que nacen del alma pura y con gran matiz.
