The Dance of the Jaguar is one of the most emblematic traditions of Guerrero, the jaguar being of Mexico's most representative animals alongside the serpent. The dance is a metaphor for the colonization where the death of the jaguar represents the domination of Spain over the indigenous culture.
The marionette dates back to ancient Greece, where they were called neuropasta "an object put in motion by strings". In Mexico, they came with Hernán Cortés and the Spanish conquistadores and have been part of Mexican culture ever since.
