Quetzalcoatl is a Mexican folk-dance troupe that has been delighting
audiences for over 35 years throughout IL, and as far as Mexico. The group's
dream is to one day reach Europe. The group received its name
"Quetzalcoatl" in 1983, the meaning of Quetzalcoatl originates from
the ancient Mexican and northern Central American Civilizations. The name
"Quetzalcoatl" literally means snake or serpent with feathers of
quetzal, which implies something divine or precious in the Nahuatl language. Quetzalcoatl was the God of the wisdom of the primitive Mexicans, a God of the air or a sun God, and a benefactor of their race who instructed them in the use of agriculture and metals as well.
