San Rafael de Guatuso will be the venue Sunday for the Festival Cultural Maleku 2013 sponsored jointly by the Asociación de Desarrollo Maleku and the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud.
The Maleku are one of the pre-Columbian groups that still live in Costa Rica. Most are on a reserve. The event will be at the Palenque Margarita, one of the villages. It is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The culture ministry promises traditional foods, crafts and a display of Maleku costumes. The community is near El Tanque and La Fortuna de San Carlos.
The ancestors of the current residents controlled a vast section of land to the north and west.
