This photograph comes from a series of Photographer Kike Arnal’s titled Voladores. Voladores is a pre-Hispanic dance ritual still practiced in Mesoamerica by indigenous peoples of Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Anthropologists and historians have given many interpretations of the meaning of the ritual depending on the ethnic group that performs the tradition. Today, the Voladores dance is done as a syncretism during the celebration of the catholic patron saints celebrations in small towns with deep religious beliefs. The photographs from thei series were taken during a four year period in dozens of towns of the Sierra Norte in the state of Puebla, Mexico. Most of the voladores in this region are of Nahuatl origin. These images are part of a book Voladores, published by Meristemo Editorial in Mexico by the end of 2014. Kike Arnal, a Sequoia parent, is a photographer and videographer who has produced essays in the Americas, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. His photographs have been published in The New York Times, National Geographic, Life and Mother Jones among others.
