About this book

Introduction

In the first book on Aztec dance in the United States, Ernesto Colín combines cultural anthropology, educational theory, and postcolonial theory to create an innovative, interdisciplinary, long-term ethnography of an Aztec dance circle and makes a case for the use of the metaphor of palimpsest as an ethnographic research tool.

Reviews

"Centered around descriptions of the interrelated practices of Calpulli Tonalehqueh, an extant Danza group in San Jose, California, Indigenous Education through Dance and Ceremony makes a significant contribution to the current research literature, especially ethnographies of education. The book aims toward a radical reformulation of what education might look like, as both an intentionally (and intently) personal and cultural/historical project. The project begins to reveal the inner workings of the Calpulli as well as the way those inner workings must reach across space and time for materials and guidance." - Jason Duque Raley, Lecturer, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
