There is no time when this is better displayed than during the patron saint's festival. Moyogolpa's festival is known for el baile de las Inditas. This dance is supposed to represent the relationship between the indigenous people of Nicaragua and the Europeans and the combining of the two cultures. The woman represents the indigenous while the man represents the dance. The dance represents the relationship as one filled with love, respect, and chivalry, although not necessarily equality.
