Documentary Explores Indigenous Mexicans Who Converted To Islam

A new Vice documentary explores the only indigenous Mexican tribe to convert to Islam — a group of about 300 Tzotzil Indians who practice their faith on the outskirts of San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico.

Led by a worship leader named Cheb Cheb Ibrahim, members of the Muslim community have begun building their own mosque in the area. As the video shows, the tribe have found a way to consolidate their Mexican culture with their Muslim faith — like eating tacos during a Ramadan fast break! Watch above. (h/t We Are Mitu)
