Sitemap An amazing thing about the Tarahumara culture is their need to live according to with their own beliefs, and a willingness to refuse modern conveniences and only a civilization predicated on culture and nature. They have a tendency to migrate with the changes of season, searching for higher, cooler ground in the hot Mexico summers, and lower, warmer areas through the winter. They are simply spiritual, believing that harmony with natural surroundings is paramount to life, which is especially admirable in an area that has lately been the focus of both deforestation and mining activity. The results of the activities are that a lot of the area’s natural wildlife and greenery are actually threatened by extinction.
