Hilda Maribel Sifuentes Altimirano is a Peruvian weaver who demonstrated her craft as part of the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps at the 2011 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Started in 1967, the Festival is "a national and international model of a research-based presentation of contemporary living cultural traditions." It brings musicians, artists, performers, craftspeople, workers, cooks, storytellers, and others to the National Mall each year "to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, and aesthetics that embody the creative vitality of community-based traditions."
