Guatemalan Independence Day: Honoring Indigenous Culture

In honor of Guatemalan Independence Day, September 15th, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos capturing the beauty of the indigenous culture in Guatemala. The artist, Jon Kaplan, has photographed so perfectly what we are inspired by on a daily basis here at Stela 9. For more information on the artist and his photos you can visit his webpage here. For more information about Stela 9 our efforts to employ local artisans and support indigenous cultures, please visit
