This shawl by artist Carlos Sánchez is part of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian collections; the dragons or devils on this piece indicate that it's part of the outfit of a Diablada dancer. La Diablada (Dance of the Devils) is a typical Andean dance characterized by the masks and devil outfits worn by the performers. This dance is the centerpiece of the Oruro Carnival, combining indigenous religious ceremonies with Spanish carnival and Catholic beliefs.

The Oruro Carnival is one of the most famous carnivals in Latin America. In 2008, UNESCO recognized it as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

A Look Back: #LCW2021

HUGE gracias to all of the friends, partners, allies, and accomplices who celebrated LCW2021 with us. After a year of being isolated and socially distanced from each other, this was an especially important Latino Conservation Week. With our friends at Hispanic Access Foundation and so many others, we celebrated with over 180+ virtual and in-person events nationwide. Showing up for each other, despite the challenges we face, is a testament to our collective resilience, to our spirit, to our sense of community and belonging. Let's keep the celebration going so it's not only Latino Conservation Week, but month, year, decade, lifetime.

Estamos aquí, siempre hemos estado aquí, y seguiremos aquí. #VamosOutdoors #CrecemosOutdoors #YoCuento

We're still smiling from #LatinoConservationWeek 🤩

Our final staff spotlight to celebrate #LatinoConsevationWeek, meet Ranger Alejandro - The first place in which I formed a connection with nature was in my home of Mexico in the region of the Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes. I spent my childhood exploring the outdoors and the opportunities the land and my community had to offer through storytelling about mountain formations, soccer, family get-togethers, and walks along the fields where I’d look for edible mushrooms, fruits and plants. When I immigrated to the U.S., my relationship with nature was met by the culture shock of a new environment, language, and definitions for what recreating outdoors meant. Still fortunate to have access to nature in my proximity to the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, I continued to find ways to submerge myself in open places where my curiosity could reignite the sense of belonging in the outdoors I’d grown to be so accustomed to. One of these opportunities came through Pura Vida, a community outreach program with the goal of providing outdoor recreation experiences to local Latine youth. The impact of the moments spent in this program, from camping for the first time to being able to connect science and art through observations about the natural world, paved a path in which I could once again see a present and future where my presence in outdoor spaces was one of happiness and comfort. Thanks to the support from my communities, I’m now able to have the opportunity to serve a bridging connection between visitors and the nature of this volcano and all of which it homes. In my position as a park ranger, I hope to continue meeting folks, hearing their stories, providing answers to their curiosity of what can be found in the park and sharing an appreciation for all the diversity that deserves recognition in every environment to inspire care and stewardship. Latino Conservation Week is a time to celebrate and continue the contributions, progress and joy that bonds the Latine community to Mother Earth- something that for me, carries immense importance in relation to the National Park Service’s mission.

El primer lugar en el que formé mi conexión con la naturaleza fue en mi hogar de México en la región de los volcanes Popocatépetl e Iztaccíhuatl. Pase mi niñez explorando al aire libre y las oportunidades que la tierra y mi comunidad tenían que ofrecer a través de historias sobre la formación de las montañas, fútbol, convivios de comida con mi familia y caminatas a los campos donde buscaba por setas, frutas y plantas comestibles. Cuando emigre a los EE.UU, mi relación con la naturaleza fue recibida con un choque cultural de un nuevo ambiente, lenguaje, y definiciones a lo que la recreación al aire libre significaba. Afortunado de tener acceso a la naturaleza en mi proximidad al Gran Ecosistema de Yellowstone, continúe buscando maneras de sumergirme en lugares abiertos en los cuales mi curiosidad pudiera revivir el sentido de pertenencia al que me había acostumbrado. Una de estas oportunidades se presentó a través de Pura Vida, un programa de alcance comunitario con la meta de proveer experiencias de recreación al aire libre a la comunidad Latine local. El impacto de los momentos que pase en este programa, de acampar por primera vez a poder conectar la ciencia y arte a través de observaciones del mundo natural, allanaron un camino en el que nuevamente vi un presente y futuro en el que mi presencia en ambientes externos era una de felicidad y comodidad. Gracias al apoyo de mis comunidades, es ahora que tengo la oportunidad de servir como puente de conexión entre visitantes y la naturaleza de este volcán y todo lo que refugia. Como guardaparques, espero seguir conociendo al público y sus historias, proviniendo respuestas a sus curiosidades del parque y compartiendo la apreciación por la diversidad de todo ambiente para inspirar el cariño y protección por aquellos lugares. La Semana Latina de la Conservación es una ocasión para celebrar y continuar las contribuciones, el progreso y la alegría de la comunidad Latine que nos enlaza a la Madre Tierra- algo que para mi, carga inmensa importancia en relación a la misión del Servicio de Parques Nacionales.

Latino Conservation Week was created to support the Latino community getting into the outdoors and participating in activities to protect our natural resources. Find out more at: https://latinoconservationweek.com/

"My hope on this anniversary of the ADA is for every disabled child, especially children of color, to know that they are perfect, that they are whole, that they belong, they are powerful, & that true social change cannot happen without them." - Conchita Hernández Legorreta.

The ADA was passed into law 31 years ago. The fight for disability rights continues. Access to nature is a human right. Access is love. Let's work together to make sure that city parks, state parks, and national parks, and other outdoor spaces are accessible, safe, and welcoming for all. Let's make some noise.
