A tiny Zapotec rancho of potters and corn farmers...
|Remote and hidden, electricity was wired into Yojuela in 1989; the dirt road connecting this narrow green valley to the rest of the world was completed by the villagers in 1994. Yojuela is a string of wood and adobe houses along a foothill creek; a tiny Zapotec village of potters and corn farmers.|
Almost all of the forty or so
women here make pots. When the rainy season has passed and the corn is
harvested they work the clay, producing enough pottery to keep the surrounding
villages well stocked in cookware.
