Historical Corridor CAREM: the heartbeat of culture in the Heart of Baja California
Part of the cultural richness of Tecate lies in the preservation of their historical, archaeological and oral tradition of its inhabitants. In recent years some researchers have devoted themselves to disclosing Tecate history, publishing a variety of books on the subject, which can be found in public libraries throughout the state.
Within the historical record of Tecate, one highlight is that this magical town is home to the Kumiai culture, a native nation that has preserved its traditions and customs throughout the centuries. One of the places that have managed to recover and disseminate the history of the Kumiai is the Community Museum of Tecate, a project sponsored by the Historic Corridor CAREM AC, a non-profit organization that raises funds through events, cultural programs and workshops for the community.

CAREM Historic Corridor, chaired by Mr. Hernández Bracamontes, was established in the year 1997 with the aim of specializing in historical, cultural and scientific issues in the region.
