In Junin, specially in a town named Mito, every January 1st, 2nd and 3rd there is town dance called "la Huaconada." During this dance, the most respectable men in the town are selected to behave as the "huacones" of the year, and, as such, they dance and become the authority of the town. The dance is over a thousand years old and recalls the council of elders that was carried out in Mito to decide the important matters of the town in the old days.

Today the dance is performed in many towns, but all of them acknowledge the one in Mito as the main and original one.

Now you can have one of this masks at home. The ones we sell preserve the traditional manufacturing process, so you can deem it an original mask. Hang it in one of your walls and enlighten your visitors with this tradition that has been shared generation upon generation for centuries. Leave them willing to travel to Mito for the next Huaconada. Get ready to inherit your mask to your son, as tradition demands, as well.
