The Honduran Embassy in DC sponsors a Honduran independence day celebration, 'Juntos por Honduras', this year on the 15th of September, probably in Gaithersburg, MD. This includes folk dance performances by the championship dance group, Oro Lenca from La Esperanza, and by Raices Hondurenas, a Honduran Folklorico dance group located in Maryland. Both these groups will also be dancing in Atlanta and NYC around the same time. You can get details for 'Juntos por Honduras' celebrations in August 2013 at the Honduran Embassy web site or the same details plus all Folklorico performances in that two week interval at www.raiceshondurenas.org. --John Mikesell (Proteccion, Santa Barbara, 88-90).
