Voladores de Papantla

The 'Voladores de Papantla' are Totonac Indians, and the voladores rite is a traditional act of worship. now most often performed as entertainment for tourists. The voladores climb to the top of a tall pole, wind ropes around the pole, and then leap off into the air. As the ropes unwind, they descend slowly to the ground. The caporal plays a drum and flute and invokes an ancient spiritual offering in the form of a spectacular dance.
