Los cuerudos is a regional dance from Oaxaca traditionally performed by males disguised as females. In Los Angeles, a group of US-born indigenous Oaxacan women from the community of San Bartolomé Zoogocho took it upon themselves to change tradition and for the first time during the celebration of their patron saint, San Bartolomé, the dance was performed by women dressed as men.
