Una pequeña ciudad del estado de Sonora de no más de 30,000 habitantes, pero con una gran historia(cuna de la revolucion mexicana).






El juramento Yaqui es un ejemplo del compromiso que deberían de tener nuestros gobernantes actuales. Los Yaquis son un ejemplo de compromiso con la sociedad y el bien común.

Para ti ya no habra sol,
para ti ya no habra muerte,
para ti y ano habra dolor,
para ti ya no habra calor.

Ni sed ni hambre ni lluvia,ni aire,
ni enfermedad ni familia,
nada podra atemorizarte,
todo ha concluido para ti,
exepto una cosa
el cumplimiento de tu deber.

En el puesto que se te designe,
ahi quedaras,
por la defensa de tu nacion,
de tu pueblo, de tu raza,
de tus costumbres, leyes y religion.

¿Juras cumplir con el mandato divino?


English Version

For you, there will be no sun,
for you, there will be no death,
for you, there will be no pain,
for you, there will be no heat.

Neither thirst, nor hunger,
nor rain, nor air, nor sickness,
not even family…
Nothing will cause you fear
It is all over for you,
Except one thing:
The fulfillment of your duty.

In the position taht you had been assigned,
There you will be
To defend your nation,
Your people, your race,
your habits, your religion…

Do you swear to fulfill God’s mandate?

Moonrise over Banamichi, Sonora

Spring along the Rio Sonora Valley brings the first signs of the fierce summer heat that will peak during the month of June, lessening somewhat when the summer monsoon rains arrive early in July.

Flowers are blooming both in the desert and in people’s homes. The early evening air is perfumed by the blossoms on both citrus and the orchidia trees, bauhinia mexicana. Winter wheat is maturing, fava beans and onions as well, the garlic won’t be far behind.

The prickly pear cactus, nopales, are putting out their tender baby pads, most of which will be eaten in a variety of household dishes.

Remodeled old home in Banamichi.

This was a short trip for us, four days minus two days of travel. As always, I spend a portion of our trips looking to see what local foods are in season and learning how they are prepared.

On our way down, we stopped in the town of Imuris for afternoon meal of tacos. Imuris, a small town where two major roads intersect, has a main street that is lined with one taqueria after another.

While eating a young boy came up to me selling bags of chuales, wild lambsquarter greens that are collected along irrigation canals and the edges of fields.

Not wanting to bother finding the correct amount of change, I told him that I wasn’t interested and that besides, I didn’t know how to prepare them. “No problema,” he told me, “I’ll give you the recipe.” That promptly cancelled my excuse so off we went with two bags. Nothing complex to their preparation, boil or steam them until soft and then add them to eggs, sauces, beans and the like.

We added them to beans that were refried with milk and a little red chile powder. Combined with a little queso fresco, or non-cooked farmer’s cheese and a flour tortilla, they are nothing short of fantastic.

Separated from Athena and Kalin while riding bikes, I wandered into the tiny ranchito La Martina, where I found four men, one of them older, quietly talking, wrapping up the day’s work to the glow of the setting sun.

Comments of Norman E. Borlaug

I want to begin my remarks by paying special tribute to Mexican wheat researchers and farmers of Sonora, who helped to develop the high-yielding wheat cultivars and crop management technologies that revolutionized wheat production in Mexico and later in many parts of the world.

Sonoran farmers also produced and exported thousands of tons of improved wheat seed that initiated the Green Revolution in Asia and elsewhere. Later, the warmth of the Sonoran people welcomed several thousand wheat trainees from around the globe, who came to learn about modern research and development.

When I arrived in 1945, the original Yaqui valley experiment station was in shambles. There was no machinery left, no electricity, and the windows were broken. Nevertheless, that’s where I stayed, sleeping on a cot and cooking over an outdoor stove.

The station superintendent, Ing. Ricardo Leon Manso, had little or no budget but was still eager to support our work. Critical to our success, however, were several Yaqui farmers. I would like to acknowledge two in particular. One was the late Ing. Rafael Angel Fierros, a new farmer just getting started, who helped us with machinery.

The other was Aureliano Campoy, who farmed the land next door to the experiment station. He, too, loaned us machinery and helped us in many ways.

A Learning Vacation in Sonora, Mexico

The Sonoran Desert spans 120,000 square miles across the southwestern United States and the western half of the state of Sonora, Mexico. Abundant cacti and other succulents defy its dry climate—the desert willow, cave primrose, and lupine call this area home.

During this investigation of the people and plants of Sonora, savor the region’s broad desert, jagged mountains, expansive basins, and stunning coastlines. Explore a spectacular and newly researched ancient Trincheras site (contemporary with the Hohokam). Delve into the living cultures of Sonoran peoples—the Mayo, Seri, and Yaqui—and learn about their arts and crafts as you enjoy home visits and local cooking. During Semana Santa, the holy week preceding Easter, observe long-standing traditions as you attend ceremonies that define Mexican culture…

En algunos casos, al hablar del desierto surge la imagen del arenoso Sahara con sus palmeras y sus camellos. Sin embargo, existen diferentes desiertos, de distintas edades y composiciones geológicas, florísticas y faunísticas.

Hay en todo el mundo trece grandes masas de tierra seca distribuidas en dos tajas discontinuas, una en cada hemisferio – más o menos entre los trópicos de Cáncer y de Capricornio- que ocupan un tercio de la porción continental del globo terráqueo. En esas tierras prodigiosas están incluidos los; cuatro desiertos más importantes de América del Norte: el de la Gran Cuenca, el de Mohave, el Chihuahuense y el Sonorense.

El desierto Sonorense es el más rico y complejo de los cuatro por su gran diversidad biológica y por su alternancia geológica. Se encuentra en más de la mitad del estado de Sonora, en dos tercios de la península de Baja California y está presente en todas las islas del Mar de Cortés; también lo comparten Arizona y una pequeña porción de California.

El Sonorense es un desierto joven que terminó de contraerse y expandirse a finales de la última glaciación, hace alrededor de 10 mil años.
