Judea Cora

The “Coras” are an ethnic group in México, the majority of whom are located on the Sierra del Nayar. They live in mountainous regions where electricity, water and other common commodities are absent, and that can only be accessed by small planes. They have their own language. The Coras were one of the last communities to be conquered in México by the Spanish. In fact, the Spanish did not conquered them by force but by religion. Because of this, the Coras still have a lot of their own traditions and beliefs. This series of portraits was taken during the Coras celebration of the Holy week, or Judea Cora, as they call it.
