Presented by the Association of Friends of the Ixchel Museum, this book celebrates the traditions and culture of indigenous people in Guatemala. Each page features a different photo that chronicles the lives of indigenous people, accompanied by captions and descriptions that are written in English and Spanish. All purchases of this cultural book contribute to the Ixchel Museum.

The museum's name honors the pre-Hispanic goddess who was the patroness of weaving and fertility. The private, non-profit Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Textiles and Clothing was founded in 1977. Its mission is to collect, document, rescue, and exhibit the heritage of indigenous textiles in Guatemala, teaching it to people in order to conserve and spread it.
