A large group of adults and children kneel and two adults stand in front of a ruined stone building with two rectangular doorways in San Sebastián/Saint Sebastián, Jalisco, Mexico. The building is probably a Catholic church, and the people are participating in a Catholic mass. The majority of the kneeling people are probably Wixárika. The two standing men are Catholic priests
