Aztec Dancer

When most people think of Seattle, Washington, they picture cultural icons like Starbucks, Microsoft, and Boeing. But the city is also home to a thriving community of ethnic Aztecs. Here, an Aztec dancer dressed in handmade “atueno” (traditional dress) dances at an event held in honor of the Aztec New Year (March 12). The Aztec, who are known as the people of the sun, believe they’ve been drawn to live in Seattle, a city of rain, by the Aztec god of water.” ~ Ryan, T. Bell. Photographer

    That is something I’ve never know and forgotten before. 🙂

    There are a few videos of it on YouTube. The camera person who caught the image above is a true artist.
