MALEKU CULTURAL FESTIVAL
Each year, the Maleku Indigenous Community of Costa Rica hosts a cultural festival. The purpose of the festival is two-fold: in addition to serving as a celebration of the Maleku's unique cultural identity, the festival helps introduce visitors to traditional practices, art, stories, and traditions.
