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. In this program, La Paz prepares for the Great Power of Christ fiesta representing Bolivia's indigenous dances. Roberto meets a young Aymara-Bolivian dancer, David Quispe, who invites him to his hometown near Lake Titicaca, a sacred ground for the Aymara people. They experience a ceremony honoring the Pachamama, or Mother Earth, conducted by a 100-year-old shaman. Back in La Paz, Roberto visits a cooperative of women knitters, who tell him about the challenges of migrating from the countryside. David invites Roberto to become a dancer in his group and explains how the traditional dances help indigenous people reclaim their identity in the city.
