Danza de los Voladores, Veracruz

Palo Volador (pole flying) is an ancient ritual of the Nahua, Huastec and Otomi. Five men (one stands on top playing the flute/drums), and the others drop from the top of a 100 ft pole, and hanging by ropes, circle around 13 times upside down. This ceremony took place at ATMEX2013 in Veracruz. UNESCO considers this part of their cultural heritage. Check out the video here!
