Petate is a Spanish word that means “mat” or “sleeping mat.” It is a common item in Latin American culture, and it is used for a variety of purposes.

Petates are often used for sleeping, particularly by people who do not have access to beds. They are also used for sitting, for eating, and for working. In some cases, petates are even used as walls or partitions.

Petates are typically made from a variety of materials, including reeds, grasses, and palm leaves. They are often decorated with colorful patterns, and they can be a source of pride for their makers.

Petates are an important part of Latin American culture, and they have been used for centuries. They are a symbol of the region’s rich history and its diverse people.

Petates are also a symbol of resilience and strength. They have been used by people who have faced many challenges, and they continue to be used by people who are struggling to survive. The petate is a reminder that even in the most difficult times, there is always hope.

Feast of the Octave of the Resurrection

In this photographic exhibition by the Artist Edgar Bernal, the deep content of the religiosity of a community of migrants from the P'urhépecha population of Cherán is appreciated. In them we observe what in the culture and language of our original people is called "Tsinskua" which means in its spiritual sense "to revive" that is, to return to life after having passed through death or from an inanimate state of the body .
