Natives of Totonaca Culture, Costa Maya Mexico, MG_5352

The Totonac people resided in the eastern coastal and mountainous regions of Mexico at the time of the Spanish arrival in 1519. Today they reside in the states of Veracruz, Puebla, and Hidalgo. They are one of the possible builders of the pre-Colombian city of El Tajin, and further maintained quarters in Teotihuacan (a city which they claim to have built). Until the mid-19th century they were the world’s main producers of vanilla.

Looking proud in their colorful attires, those so-called Flying Men prepare themselves to a spectacular show.
