I took this photo on July 20th, 2008, in  Concepcion del Sur, Santa Barbara, Honduras. This date marks the Dia de  Lempira in Honduras, when the nation celebrates their cultural history  and honors Chief Lempira, a Lencan warrior who unified hundreds of  Honduran tribes in opposition against the Spanish conquerors. Many towns  celebrate by holding a Day of Culture, where traditional food and dance  are on display. This picture depicts a competition where school  children used materials of local significance to make elaborate  costumes. This girl is wearing naturally dyed corn husk jewelry, and  carries a basket of a local variety of banana.
