“...They teach Arabic to new converts and even organize the hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca, which many indigenous Muslims have already undertaken...”

And I thought this was supposed to be an “impoverished area”. How many pesos does a jet flight to Saudi Arabia cost? How many years does an average indigenous farm worker have to work to be able to afford such a pilgrimage unless it is heavily subsidized from outside.
