The collection consists of 17 posters produced in the mid-1980s by the Dirección General de Culturas Populares (DGCP), an
insitution of the Mexican government dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and dissemination of popular and indigenous
culture in Mexico. The poster series, called "Nuestra Cultura," consists mainly of short stories retelling legends and myths
from local cultures, with each poster produced by and focusing on a particular region of Mexico. Many of the posters include
a story written in Spanish, along with a translation of that story in the indigenous language of the region, including Mixe,
Yaqui, Chontal, Chontal de Tabasco, Nahuatl, Maya, and Purépecha.
