Clothing and Mask of the Morenos

Morenos Achachis
The dress and mask of the morenada evolved over the years. The oldest Moreno mask preserved in the museum is from 1875 and was made by Pánfilo Flores. The design that we can observe is delicate and subtle, a little simpler than those observed now.
At the moment the masks of the brunettes have very large and outstanding eyes, in addition to the outgoing tongue, that aspect represents the fatigue and the illnesses that they suffered when living in the heights.

The rattle is an inevitable element in the dance of the morenada, its sound is usually associated with the squeak produced by the friction of the chains carried by the slaves.
The characteristic tired steps of the Morenos are related to the grape tread. For Urquizo Sossa la Morenada represents the uprising of blacks against the fearsome Caporal, who by means of deceits get drunk and then make him step on grapes, but Vargas thinks it is the Morenos themselves, who have to step on the grapes.
