Norteño, chiltepins and Jaguars: a celebration of the Northern Borderlands

  • Exo Roast Co. 403 N. 6th Ave. Tucson, AZ 85705 (map)

Near Sahuaripa, Sonora, in the foothills of the Sierra Madre, the 55,000-acre Northern Jaguar Reserve is home to the northernmost population of jaguars. Since 2003, the Northern Jaguar Project has been working with local communities to help protect the jaguar and its wild habitats. Come learn about the work that has engaged ranchers and cowboys, students and other community members to help protect the jaguar-- a cultural icon and the only big cat in the Americas.

Afterward, Tradiciones featuring Conjunto Nopal will present an evening of regional Norteño, and other music from Mexico: corridos, polkas, huapango, cumbias and much more.

AND, just in time for the holidays, we will be offering wild chiltepins, hand-picked from the wild lands of the Northern Jaguar Reserve in Sonora, Mexico. Other hand-made crafts from Sonora will also be available for purchase.

Proceeds from sales will go directly back to the communities in Sahuaripa, Sonora, home of the Northern Jaguar Reserve.

The Northern Jaguar presentation will be 7-8 PM

Music with Tradiciones y Conjuto Nopal 8-10 PM

$5 at the door. Get here early for a seat!
