Edited film by Pacho (Bruce) Lane focuses on the Totonac Indian community in Huehuetla, Puebla, in eastern central Mexico and contrasts two systems of education. The public school system uses patriotic symbols to "integrate" Indian pupils into the national culture while teaching them to reject their own identity. In contrast, the Danza de los Huehues urges young Totonacs to learn from the mestizos ("whites"), yet warns them not to abandon their own culture. Originally filmed in 197X[?]
