Before going out to fish, a Yoreme must give thanks to nature.

The Yoreme are an Indigenous group from Topolobampo, Sinaloa. They live in a region affected by the construction of an ammonia plant and where sea levels are expected to rise due to climate change.

Before going out to fish, a Yoreme must give thanks to nature, he will raise his prayer to the universe for life, for the animals and plants that surround him, for the food he will be able to gather for himself and his family. This connection with the Earth is the main mystery of this indigenous nation that has lived in the northwest of Mexico for hundreds of years, before this country was colonized by Spain and its religious missions.
