Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art (FOFA) seeks to preserve and promote the rich folk art traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico, which have been passed on from generation to generation, often over hundreds of years. Today, these traditions are endangered by economic challenges in the region that significantly impact the folk art community.
