September 4th - October 25th

Chihuahua, the largest state in the Mexican union, is one full of rich history, strong ties with the United States, and a vast culinary history. Home to thousands of miles of dry lands, it is also a state full of forests and wide river valleys where thousands of buffalo used to roam, faced extinction, and have recently been reintroduced. Due to the shortness of seasons, where the climate changes drastically between summer and winter, local tribes, like the Tarahumara and Tepehua were forced to dry produce, proteins, and grains in order to survive.
