Summary

  • Mexican-American dancers ("Danzantes") travel to Chalma, Central Texas, and San Diego as they rediscover their indigenous heritage. They are adherents of "La danza de la conquista del Gran Tenochtitlan," also known as "Los concheros," "Danza Azteca," and "Danza Chichimeca", which traces its origins to pre-Columbian Nahua (Aztec) roots. The Danzantes are organized into dance groups and must take part in a complex series of "obligaciones" throughout the year, including an annual pilgrimmage to the shrine of Chalma for four days of ritual and dance.
