We hope to provide a little time for you to attend part of one Monday afternoon’s performance of the Guelaguetza, if you wish, on July 27th. This will not be an organized visit, and it will be optional. You might also choose to try to catch the Donají legend theatrical event on Sunday evenings, July 19th or July 26th, on your own.
- This blog from 2013 includes some descriptions and many excellent photos of the festival.
- Here is the page from 2013 about the Legend of Donají (in Spanish).
- Extensive photo page from a Guelaguetza parade (calenda) in 2012.
Please see our page of resources relating to dance and to ethnomusicology if you are interested in designing curricula around these themes. In both arenas, you will find that pre-Columbian indigenous traditions live on in various forms, often in combination with European forms.
