Translated titleThe Güegüense
DescriptionLocated outside of a dance school in the suburbs of Managua, this mural depicts an indigenous dance called the "Güegüense." The dance dates back to the 16th century where indigenous peoples would wear masks and perform satire about the Spanish conquistadors and colonial settlers. Within this mural there are two types of people: indigenous barefooted peoples and others wearing white masks and shoes.
