In the Amuzgo town of Suljaa’, women are backstrap weavers and cotton sowers. In this place, traditional textile knowledge is handed down and possessed by women. But violence against them is an ordinary thing. Yecenia, a young weaver, is mourning because her cousin, Silvia, has been a victim of femicide. She and other weaving women create a collective ritual to honor Silvia’s life, and the textile legacy all of them have received from their female ancestors.
