The Tarahumara Indians also have celebrations at other times such as at the end of harvest time.

Traditional clothing for the Tarahumara consists of a white cloth shirt, sometimes with colorful prints, white cloth pants or wraparounds with colorful belts or accessories. Running has always been a tradition and necessity of the Tarahumara.

Headbands of cloth usually red are worn upon the head. It is their only mode of transportation and many of the small communities are far apart.

In their daily lives, they regularly cover large distances, much of it vertical, by jogging.
