David Rivera Herrera
David lives with his parents and siblings in Santa María Ixcatlán, Oaxaca, located northwest of Oaxaca city in the Cañada region, close to the Mixteca border. Despite his being just 25 years old (as of 2020), David has become “the boss” while on the palenque where the family continues the traditions of their ancestors, crushing the agaves by hand and fermenting in cowhide. Carrying a “can-do” attitude with him both on and off the palenque, David is simultaneously young and bubbly, and also wise and insightful.
