During the Corn Dance at Santo Domingo, which is in reality a thanksgiving to the gods for good crops, there is always the group or chorus of old men who sing or chant the tribal songs of thanksgiving. The Indians are dressed in gala attire. The dance is very picturesque, and a great many people from the neighboring towns attend.
