Ichapekene Piesta Moxos

The heritage and culture of the people of the Beni has been recognized by UNESCO, as the Ichapekene Piesta Moxos was inscribed yesterday on the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This is a great honor for San Ignacio de Moxos, for indigenous people in the Beni, and for all the people of Bolivia. UNESCO's list contains all kinds of fascinating heritage from all over the world. The Fiesta of San Ignacio is more than three hundred years old, and brings together indigenous culture, Baroque music, costumes and dance into a month long party every year. Make sure to see the photographs (click on the tab) and the video. You can also download the documentation.
