Caption/Description

The Tarahumara Indians of Northern Mexico live in the rugged Sierra Madres. Most of them live in caves in the highlands to avoid white men called 'bearded devils' in their language. They barely survive on meager crops. Infant mortality is 80 percent. Their name means runners. They have races that may last 48-72 hours non-stop over mountain trails.
