A program on the Hispanic Culture took center stage at the George Washington Carver National Monument Saturday. More than a dozen dancers modeled colorful native costumes. What was the goal?
“We want to show this to the community and show them our Latin roots, our Mexican roots and show them the traditions of our state which is Morelos,” Alondra Altamirano said.
She is a member of the Chinelos Morelenses Unidos en Arkansas group which is headquartered in Springdale.
She says the costumes are exclusive to the Mexican state of Morelos which is located in south-central Mexico.
Flags and other information about other Central American nations were also a part of the program.
