Toreo of Casabindo, a Jujeña tradition
It is a unique holiday with popularparticipation. Initially speaking of the Toreo of Casabindo and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary , we would refer to a Catholic theme. But the encounter is much more than that, the cultural and ancestral currents that influence are very different from each other.
In reality the tradition is called Toreo de la vincha de Casabindo, and it is not a bullfight like the ones we can see in Spain. Here it is summed up in a game where the prize is a headband, and man and animals dispute it. With a strong spiritual passion in the name of freedom and the Virgin Mary.
The original people were subjugated by the Spaniards who the mines of Casabindo were exploiting. Quipildor Tabarcachi raises the idea of being free, but is captured and captured. The ones Spaniards take him to the bullring in Casabindo. Once inside, none of the the bulls that was there attacks him. Seeing that there was no reaction, one of the Spanish asked to remove Tabarca’s headband with silver coins and put it on to a bull for him to get it back. The young man manages to recover his headband, but at that moment he is attacked by one of the bulls that causes him fatal injuries. Before dying, with his last strength, Quipildor consecrates the band to the Virgin Mary. This happened on August 15 and that’s why Jujuy keeps this tradition for freedom.
It develops in front of the church of Casabindo. The activity main thing is to remove from the bull a headband with silver coins. An activity which does not pose a cruel relationship with the animal as we might imagine. He people is concentrated in the name of Freedom, Justice and the Virgin Mary.
