Summary:
Edited film by Pacho (Bruce) Lane documents Mexican-American "danzantes" travelling to Chalma, Central Texas, and San Diego, California, where they rediscover their indigenous heritage. The "danzantes" are adherents of "La danza de la conquista del Gran Tenochtitlan," also known as "Los concheros," "Danza Azteca," and "Danza Chichimeca," a dance tradition that traces its origins to pre-Columbian Nahua ("Aztec") roots
