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 visits San Miguel de Allende during the week-long celebrations honoring both St. Michael Archangel and a 16th century battle in which warring Chichimec groups lay down their arms and embraced each other as brothers. Descendants have preserved the tradition through dance troupes and by safeguarding artifacts representing the souls of their ancestors. Leticia also visits a metal artisan shop and goes on an herb-gathering expedition. Finally, she joins residents of El Valle de Maiz that have spent days constructing a two story-high xuchil, or cross of palm leaves, which they carry to the cathedral plaza.
