In "My Americas," Mexican American hosts Roberto Alcaraz and Leticia V�asquez travel into the rich cultural and spiritual life of Latin America in search of their heritage. In this program, Leticia explores Spanish colonial architecture and visits the equator in Quito, Ecuador before traveling to Otavalo, where she discovers wool textiles and visits one of Ecuador's finest weavers. During the solar equinox, Otavalo hosts the Yamor Festival in preparation to plant new corn. The town's indigenous mayor explains that the event fosters respect for the indigenous community, historically subject to racial discrimination, and promotes ethnic harmony. Leticia gets dressed in traditional garb, visits a school where children learn indigenous songs and instruments, consults a traditional healer, and takes part in the final multi-ethnic procession.
