About Nahualli Folklore

Nahualli Folklore is a registered non-profit dance organization established in Vancouver, B.C. Canada since 2010.

The name Nahualli (Nah-Wall-e) originates from an indigenous language of Mexico called Nahuatl (Nah-Wah-til). It signifies an animal spirit or transforming power that protects and guides each person from moment of birth.
