DETAILS

There are many iterations of the Dance of the Devil in Mexico. When the Spaniards arrived in the New World they brought with them Catholicism and its ultimate goal of conversion. While some of the indigenous abandoned their own religious practices once the Spanish arrive, others assimilated their own belief systems along with the newly introduced Catholicism. In Santiago Juxtlahuaca, Oaxaca, the dance is an integrated part of a larger story, passed along by the occupying Spaniards. The story is one of an epic battle between the Moors and the Christians in which the Muslim Captain was captured and before this death, was offered salvation if he’d only converted. The captain chose differently, was so killed and the devils danced in celebration that they would have one more to dance with.
