Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gunchei is a type of Central America Garifuna dance in which the men take turns dancing with each woman. "Gunchei" can also refer to the music that is played during the dance.Following Christopher Columbus's discovery of the Americas for Spain, the Spanish sent numerous expeditions to the region, and they began their conquest of Maya lands in the 1520s. In 1540, Spain established the Captaincy General of Guatemala, which extended from southern Mexico to Costa Rica, and thus encompassed most of what is currently known as Central America, with the exception of British Honduras (present-day Belize). This lasted nearly three centuries, until a rebellion (which followed closely on the heels of the Mexican War of Independence) in 1821.show more
