Flying Feathers

Aztec dancer in Jardin, SMA

Once again, this year, the dancers are in town. The drumming starts in the evening and goes on all day. Seven troupes in all in the Jardin. There must be a load of large birds running around with naked butts somewhere. As we understand it, but have not verified the information, the dancing commemorates the acceptance of Christianity by the Indios. Although, gladly, they are still hanging on to some of their traditional rituals or at least their modern interpretations of them.
