Día de Lempira - Honduras

The GVI Phoenix Honduras secondary school celebrated Día de Lempira (Lempira Day). Lempira is an indigenous National heroe. 7th grade represented the Garifunas, 8th grade the Lencas and 9th grade the Maya Ch'ortí.

They also elected "queens" from each grade, with the girls dressing in local traditional dress. It was a fantastic day and so important to keep indigenous culture alive.
