The community museum ORA´TON, Alma de Piedra, was founded in 1996 at the initiative of a group of indigenous Tzotziles as a way of appropriating the dissemination and promotion of their own culture. In this space there is a collection of ceremonial objects and everyday use of the Tzotzil people (kitchen utensils, ceremonial costumes, altars, the Temascal - Steam bath and others) and that are part of the identity of the indigenous people of the town of San Juan Chamula. All visitors, both national and foreign, will be able to admire objects of great symbolic and historical value that this town has preserved through time. Within the museum's facilities, there is a store of articles handcrafted by skilled hands of those who are currently responsible for preserving and reproducing these activities inherited from their ancestors. Natural fibers (wool and cotton), wood, leather or the skin of some animals, are the materials that serve as the basis for the varied artisan production of Tzotzil men and women.
