        Flor de Piña | Dance Arts Toolkit

        Flor de Piña or "Flower of Pineapple" is a folk dance with indigenous origins from the city of Tuxtepec in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Girls dance geometric patterns with pineapples on their shoulders and offer them as gifts. The dancers’ long braids represent purity and their bare feet show their connections to the Earth. 

        This version of Flor de Piña was performed by Casa de Cultura Hispana de Lexington at the Festival del Día de los Muertos in Lexington, Ky.
