Matachines in Bernalillo

Crown of Thorns

Evangeline Chavez 2006

A laced miter is part of the Matachines tradition, celebrated every August at Bernalillo’s Fiesta de San Lorenzo, for the town’s patron saint. From Old World and New Word origins, and from pueblo and Hispanic cultures in New Mexico, the Matachines performance, procession and dance drama tells the story of Montezuma’s conversion to Christianity.
