Our Lady of San Juan De Los LagosDownloadable Video - 2004
In the series My Americas, Mexican American hosts Roberto Alcaraz and Leticia Vásquez travel into the rich cultural and spiritual life of Latin America in search of their heritage. Every August 15th, the city of San Juan de los Lagos hosts thousands of pilgrims who come to see a statue of the Virgin Mary. Leticia's family comes from the area, and she takes part in the Assumption of Mary feast and hears personal accounts of granted miracles. She also explores colonial architecture in Lagos de Moreno, and visits a centuries-old hacienda where traditional cowboys, or charros, train for the Mexican rodeo. Along the way she learns about tequila production, which originated in Jalisco, and attends a family reunion in La Barca, where she learns to make queso fresco.
