The EYE SEE Workshop in August 2015 was organized by indigenous people's communities in Toluca, one of Mexico's provincial capitals, and was attended by 22 children from ages 8 to 16.
In Central and South America, Mexico has the highest economic growth rate after Brazil. In Mexico, there are nearly 25,000 indigenous peoples, whose story is told through photographs taken by the children.
"We indigenous people have a lot of tradition and values." "I think if people knew more about us, there would be no more inequality, and we would have more opportunities", says Gabriela Francisco Florentino, 12-year-old girl, participated in the workshop.
Although they live in an environment close to modern facilities and basic social services, in the countryside and cities, there is a lot of discrimination. Most indigenous peoples live in the countryside without access to electricity, clean water and social services like education.
