In the background with very small detail, Rivera included images of the indigenous people sailing around in boats, gathering in circles and preforming the Danza de los Voladores (Dance of the Flyers) which was a ritual that consisted of dancers climbing of up a huge pole, tie themselves with rope and launch themselves until they reached the ground as a way to ask the gods to end droughts.

    just slapped me in the face and made things worse. I met with a UNM academic advisor, and I would say that I do not particularly like him because he made me question myself as to why I am even going to school and he basically made me feel like I would not be able to succeed as a pre-med student. I got offered a transfer scholarship and a grant from UNM; the catch is that I have to be enrolled in 15 credit hours there and I cannot use a consortium agreement, which basically states that I am…
