| Guelaguetza Celebration
The Guelaguetza celebration dates back long before the arrival of the Spanish and remains a defining characteristic of Oaxacan culture. Its origins and traditions come from prehispanic earth-based religious celebrations related to the worship of corn and the corn god. In contemporary Oaxaca, indigenous communities from within the state gather for Guelaguetza to present their native culture, mainly in the form of music, costumes, dances, and food. It is the most famous indigenous gathering of its kind in Mexico. Indigenous people in Oaxaca are from many different cultures. Zapotec and Mixtec are the two biggest ethnic groups of the 16 different groups found only in Oaxaca, they all have their own unique traditions and speak diverse languages.
