Piñatas are a staple for many Latinx communities, but they are not just associated with childhood anymore. The craft carries the deep cultural significance of a practice that has endured from indigenous times, sustained generations of families, and continues to be a staple of our visual identity.
We are an independent multimedia organization highlighting cultural, grassroots, and socio-political movements of the Rio Grande Valley. Our goal is to create, document, and publish stories and experiences to reframe a more holistic view of the valley by connecting with audiences on social media and cultural organizing. We provide paid opportunities and resources, ultimately allowing our community to take a central role at Trucha.
