Desc :5/1/2016 The Video Catalyst Project: 'The word “chinelos” is derived from the Nahuatl word “zineloquie” which means “disguised." The dance is one of many to develop after the Spanish conquest as native traditions and rites blended into Christian festivals. One of these is Carnival, with its traditions of wearing masks, role reversal, anonymity and behaviors not normally tolerated. This dance developed as a mockery of the Europeans with their fine clothing, beards, fair skin and mannerisms.' Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinelos
