This is Guelaguetza

In Oaxaca:

Considered a not to be missed annual Oaxaca event, the Guelaguetza is a celebration of Oaxaca’s regional costume and dance in honor of the pre-Hispanic goddess of corn, Centeotl. Villagers in full regalia arrive from their respective villages to put on a spectacle of dance and music. Dances include, the Pineapple Flower Dance from the Papaloapan region; the Turtle of the Sand danced by the famous beauties of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and the Dance of the Feather, representing the Zapotec/Mixtec rebellion against the Spaniards. Join us in the small villages to celebrate this most colorful and memorable spectacle of dance and music!
