carnival of huejotzingo

On April of 2015, the First Battalion of Indianapolis was invited to present at Bowling Green State University and perform as part of a community event in Toledo, Ohio.  This project was led by Federico and was made possible in collaboration with Roxann Brown, Hyecun Ceon, and the Sofia Quintero Art and Culture Center.  As part of Federico's research and artistic practice this event grew out of the need to bring forth visibility to diasporic hispanic immigrant communities in Indiana and giving value to and honoring this group's effort in cultural sustainability through their carnival celebration.
