Introduction:
Over its long history, Mexico has become a window onto other ways of seeing and living in the world - a pluralistic, diverse, many-layered Mexico that is challenging to fully know or categorize - part unknown and part amazing. Long before Europeans arrived there, Mexico's varied peoples and cultures intersected. Constant migration from north to south, and also in reverse, produced a web of interrelated yet distinct beliefs. A bounty of natural elements united by agriculture and religion formed a broad foundation for highly complex cultures.

The México program at the 2010 Festival illustrated the complexity and diversity of these cultural crossroads by focusing on several representative communities in Mexico today, focusing in particular on indigenous peoples. The Festival site on the National Mall also served as a crossroads where these contemporary communities could engage an international public. Here visitors could meet the Maya - corn cultivators, traditional artisans, and beekeepers; the Téenek, whose ceremonies relate to their position within the natural world and universe; the weavers from Oaxaca who brighten their wool with dyes taken from nature and are neighbors to the producers of mescal and chocolate; the artesa dancers, a living example of the African presence in Mexico, who reaffirm the constant pace and permanence of cultures; the chinelo dancers, where the Spanish and Moorish cross with the local; the chinamperos, creators of lake agriculture, known as chinampas; and the legendary Wixárika who have formed a union to protect their sacred spaces.

And, as at every Festival, visitors could also listen - to the music of the son, with harps, violins, and guitars that created the musical region of the mariachi, which extends from Michoacán to Colima; to the dramatic heart-rending a cappella singing tradition of the cardencheros, which is so distinctive to the plains of the Comarca Lagunera of Coahuila and Durango; and to the Comcáac, who have incorporated rhythms from the United States into their ritual music.

Mexico's contemporary communities strive to preserve their memories and their history in the context of the present day. The crossroads that is Mexico has, like the Téenek fliers, a view of the four directions of the universe while rotating ceaselessly around the sun. When the fliers descend from heaven, they are like rain falling on the earth to fertilize it. Where on earth they land may be regarded as the very materialization of Tamoachan - the place of creation, which the ancient inhabitants of Mexico imagined as paradise. It was that creativity that the Mexico program brought to the National Mall.

Olivia Cadaval and Rodolfo Palma Rojo were Curators and Cristina Díaz-Carrera was Program Coordinator. Alejandra de la Paz, Cultural Institute of Mexico; Martha González Ríos, National Council for Culture and the Arts; and Benito Taibo, National Institute of Anthropology and History, were Project Directors.

Biographical/Historical note:
Donald Bush Cordry (1907-1978) was an artist and photographer who studied the art of Indigenous peoples of Mexico. In 1931, Cordry made his first trip to Guerrero, Mexico, where he became interested in contemporary mask making. In 1934, Cordry moved to New York to work as a marionette designer for puppeteer Tony Sarg. While there, he contacted George G. Heye to learn more about Indigenous Mexican art. This led to a series of collecting expeditions from 1935 to 1938, during which Cordry collected Mexican masks and other artifacts for the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation.
