Kiliwa Community 

The Valle de la Trinidad valley and the Sierra San Pedro Mártir range have sheltered the Kiliwa people for decades. Their diet is very diverse, incorporating a variety of plant and animal products available in their local environment. Among their most representative dishes are flame-grilled caña de quiote (the edible stem of the maguey flower) bitter acorn atole (a maize drink dating from pre-Hispanic times), which after being distilled to eliminate the astringent taste, is eaten boiled with rabbit meat. 

One of the festivities currently celebrated is September 6th, to commemorate the date on which common lands were handed over to the community.
