The Seri New Year After 45 minutes of traveling on a deteriorated dirt road that will soon be replaced by pavement, between stories and pictures, the "igüibus" finally arrived at Punta Chueca, the Seri villaje located 25 km from Kino. With a view of Punta Chueca on the horizon, Tiburón Island as a backdrop and the sun playing hide and seek between the sky and the island, we stopped to perpetuate this image and others of osprey who studied us above. Minutes later we arrived at one of the celebration spots where the Seri flag waved behind a stage where the festivities would later begin with the beating of the drums and thre guitar trio accompanied by the voice of the lead Singer of Hamac Cazzim. Young & old dressed in their colorful outfits jumped and danced in the center while we watched before we finally gave in to the music. In another place nearby the scene was that of a game that has been played for thousands of years. But this time it included the flashes from the visitors’ cameras. The women seemed to not notice them, they were too concentrated on the laughther, the sticks and prizes of their game, their tradition. Behind them, on a wooden platform, a man begins to dance and children soon followed. Including the star of the night, the beautiful “tiny dancer”(see page 2).

We sat on the sand and listened attentively to the singing and the shell. Suddenly, about midnight, a breeze from the sea and the island began to move in. It seemed to bring with if a soft echo, almost like a whisper. This whisper filled our ears and the whole body with a strange sensation. It was as if the whisper was the voices of the spirits of the ancient Seri people who, from the island and the sky, united their voices to accompany the singer. So as to continue celebrating this great feast for all eternity. That night the menu for our group included cactus fruit, pitahaya wine and mezquite candy. The next day, breakfast at Los Náufragos restaurant. (see last page) Within the group was a photographer who collaborated to Geomundo (Geo World). Part of the experience we had was documented by him to present to Natinal Geographic Latin America.

Celebrating The Day Of The Navy In Kino On Wednesday June 1 activity at the pier began early. But there were no vendors or tourists. Instead, it was citizens and local authorities listening to the mass of the National Day of the Mexican Navy. On that day all the services that the Secretary of the Navy provides for the country were recognized. It was also the time to remember and honor those who have fallen serving their country by lowering a wreath into the water. The National Navy provides help in case of disasters caused by extreme weather, they provides support in operations against drug trafficking, protect the natural resources that are located in our seas, preventing foreign fishing vessels entering our waters to fish our most valuable species, and particularly the Navy monitors, prevents any attempts and defends foreign invasion by sea. The total territory they oversee is three million square kilometers 149 000 920, ie 1.5 times larger than the land territory of the Republic. Source: http://redescolar.ilce.edu.mx

Did You Know That In Kino… They’ve Got BLUE FEET? Indeed, on Alcatraz Island off the beaches of Bahia de Kino nests the blue-footed booby bird whose scientific name is (Sula nebouxii). This island and all of the Gulf of California is used by most of the seabirds to nest, raise their young and inhabit, so you must be very careful if you visit them. The blue-footed booby bird seems very slow on land but it is an ace in the water as it dives several meters under the sea to catch small fish like sardines to feed and to feed their chicks . This bird is named after the blue coloration on their webbed feet. It is one of the birds that are known for their diving but is very unique because it can dive for several minutes to catch fish on which to feed. It is commonly observed in boat rides, so no need to land on the islands to see them. Niños jugueteando en la playa el 12 de Marzo

The blue-footed booby bird lives in the Pacific waters of Mexico, it can be seen on the beaches, pangas up on the docks, but it only mates in the islands of the Sea of Cortez which are considered sanctuaries for nesting birds. It is recommended that if you visit Alcatraz Island and decide to enter it, do it with help of a specialist guide who will lead them in paths of safety established Dr. Alfredo Campaña Torres
