For your information "NO no" it is a very old ritual performed by children and adults that is traced back to spain, and the indians when they mixed in with Mexico. The dance-drama of los Matachines is an ancient tradition in the
Hispanic Southwest. It is one of the very few dances shared by both Hispanic and Native peoples. Its roots can trace their influences back to the Middle Ages in Europe and at the same time, find New World influences included within their scope. It's a story told in dance and continue to be a great supporter of the arts. To say it's a poor peoples custom is just ignorant. Educated and respectful people should not speak that.

It's not just poor people bunch of dumba**es. If you don't have any family traditions that you beleave in or still follow that's your problem. Don't blame your family for not wanting you. There costumes or what they wear take a lot of time to do. People chose to join a group for different reasons.

Poor Indians ?? Tell when or how often have you seen rich indians??
It's just an ancient catholic tradition, you don't have to like it or agree with it!! I am not religious, but I was raised respecting people's beliefs and customs.

Does it have anything to do with the Our Lady of Guadalupe procession that went down Garza last week? Lots of kids dresses up like Indians and dancing. They also had different groups in different colors. What is that all about?
Please no wise cracks, I'm interested, I stopped to watch.
