This morning, the daycare center in Antigua put on a “Civic Act” to celebrate indigenous cultures in Guatemala. The children dressed in typical indigenous clothing and carried fruits and vegetables to represent the major contribution that indigenous communities provide to agriculture in Guatemala.
The children processed into the education center’s amphitheater carrying the Guatemalan flag and a Common Hope sign. They sang the national anthem and recited the pledge to the Guatemalan flag (like the United States pledge of allegiance). Then, several teachers from the daycare center spoke about the importance of indigenous cultures in Guatemala.
