Imperialismo

Otomí women from the Sierra Gorda highlands selling indigenous handicrafts in the Centro, including the traditional füi baxjuä ko ndäni fanthö,* or "Santa Claus hat with Reindeer Antlers."


*[And before you all start piling on in comments, yes, we know that actually means "Christmas hat with deer horn" in Hñähñu - we're not stupid, okay?]

"Fat saws." Why?
