Hey guys! How are you today? If this is your first time watching one of my videos, I am Paola and welcome to my channel! Make sure to give it a like and subscribe to my channel so that this small family can grow. I had the opportunity to visit the museum of Sonora in the revolution. This was once home to one of the sons of one of the presidents of Mexico, Álvaro Obregón. And on the upper part of that house, only some people could visit. But once his son passed away, it transformed into a museum that everyone can visit. We are in the museum of Sonora in the revolution, with my friend Nereyda Jiménez. Who will give us a tour around the museum.
Nereyda: Alright, lets go!. Biplano was the name of this airplane that was used to win in this battle that took place in Sonora, in a place close to Guaymas. This plane was very important in the history of Sonora and Mexico. Original pilot objects This is an interactive map of the heritage of Sonora where you can see in detail information about the culture of the main indigenous communities in the south of the state, such as the Yaquis and the Mayans. Yaquis worshiped nature, reason why the upper part of the museum is dedicated to its four sections: water, earth, wind and fire. They would put them in the mines to indicate that it was a dangerous place to walk in. Paola: Carbide lamp? Nereyda: Yes, they would put in them some type of petroleum, oil or whatever it was and that was what burned and generated a flame that would give out light. They were embedded here. Yaqui language The Ténabaris which are made out of butterfly cocoons, are filled with seeds to make noise. They place them on their ankles when they dance. Although not many people know, we also have these that are made from a fruit called ¨ule¨, it´s a type of pumpkin. And they treat it until it becomes hardened. They also use it to drink water. This is a deer´s head, that they use for the deer dance. And the belts, these are made of deer´s hoof. They also make a lot of noise. All the noise that they make are closely linked to nature. It´s an old radio, it reproduces the corridos of that time and also radio novels. Tape recorder: Get your feet off the couch Melchor! The museum also has a closet, filled with many clothes of Don Porfirio times. These corsets were worn by women, and this would go on their lower backs so the dress would rise more. And Nereyda told us that it was very very difficult for women to wear these types of corsets because it would make it hard to breathe. That´s why they would say that women were weak. Nereyda: This one looks like Anna´s costume. Paola: Yes! They have all these clothes. Paola: What are we going to wear to the party?. Belén: You will dress like a rich woman. Paola: I´m gonna dress as a rich person? Belén: Yes! Paola: Lets go to the revolution! Belén: None of these match the skirt but oh well. Paola: Wear that one. Belén: Here is your purse! Plate camara Raúl (another tour guide): During the Celaya battle, a grenade blew Álvaro Obregón´s arm off. But thanks to him not dying in said battle, he finished with the revolution in 1920 and became a great president of Mexico. Raúl: The famous trenches. Those are original pieces of when Álvaro Obregón was Secretary of war and navy with Venustiano Carranza. Those are two short letters that he would send to his children during battle. (Trying to read the letter). ¨My dear Pancholin¨, what?. ¨Everyday I see..no.. where ever.. um.. many of my.. Julio and the family.. happy face¨. Presidents of Mexico born in Sonora. Album in tribute to Álvaro Obregón. Paola: Do I drag it? Raúl: No, read the question first. Paola: Oh.. what president..?. Raúl: Wrong! He loved to eat Caguama meat and a delicious lemon sweet. He really liked to eat. And he shipped all of this to the U.S. Paola: Caguama meat? What is that? Raúl: I present to you, the Caguama. Paola: It´s .. it´s a turtle? Raúl: Yes. Paola: Mm yummy! Raúl: Look how delicious it looks mm! Paola: Originals? Raúl: Yes, and here we have a price list. Those are the people that supported Álvaro Obregón. Raúl: It says, ¨long live the town´s candidate¨. Paola: long live! woo! Paola: What is this? Raúl: Put it on, it will tell you the story of how Álvaro Obregón died. They killed him. They killed him! Paola: That little bullet? Belén: It was one of the bullets found in his body. Raúl: Come to listen to the famous Victrola in the museum of Sonora in the revolution. We finished the tour with sir Raúl, he is a very good friend of mine. Who was helping me during the tour as well. The truth is I loved the tour around here, I had loads of fun. It´s a very interactive museum, very dynamic, not boring at all, and I honestly invite you to come. Do you have something to say Raúl? Raúl: We will wait for you here in the museum of Sonora in the revolution. It is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm. We will wait for you!
