“Xicano in the Wilderness features photographs by Sacraztlán artivist, educator and poet Xico González. The photographs were taken in Canada’s Yukon Territory, where Xico spent a month backpacking and white water canoeing with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS).

Through this thirty-day journey of exploration of nature and self, Xico was able to capture the splendor of his experiences through photography. Xico recognizes the lack of diversity in outdoor exploration, and wishes to inspire people of color to partake in outdoor leadership and recreational activities. He believes that reconnecting with nature is necessary in order to live a balanced life, grounded by the elements. C/S”
