Charrería, Intangible Cultural Heritage in Jalisco

Despite the fact that the United Nations recognizes charrería—Mexico’s traditional rodeo-like competitive sport—as one of our country’s Intangible Cultural Heritages, it wasn’t recognized as such by the state of Jalisco until this weekend. Informador.mx reports that it was yesterday, during the 60th anniversary of Guadalajara’s annual Charro Parade, that governor Enrique Alfaro made the announcement.

The announcement is probably symbolic, for the most part, but it provides an excellent opportunity to take a look at other Mexican elements on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritages, which includes Day of the Dead, Papantla Flyers and Mariachi music. The complete list is available here.
