18 - 27Yaqui Lent and Easter Ceremonies - The most important occasion for the Yaqui in Guadalupe are the Lent and Easter ceremonies. The Yaquis, called Yoeme, migrated to Guadalupe from Mexico. The deer dances and the pascola dances and other ceremonies had their origins in the early 1600s in Mexico. The community opens some parts of these ceremonies to the public, and all are invited. However, people must observe and respect the Yaquis' wishes that no photos be taken and that no drawings or recordings be made. There is a town ordinance with fines for such activity.

Dances, instruments, masks and costumes are an important part of Yaqui arts and tradition, and have helped them to maintain a strong sense of identity. These ancient dances and songs have been taught for generations, and are passed down through trained instructors.

The public is invited to all the following ceremonies in Guadalupe:

Six Fridays of Lent starting at 5 PM - Chapayekas with demon masks recruit new members,

Palm Saturday - 8 PM - Procession and all night fiesta,

Palm Sunday - 4 PM - Procession
