María Elena Velasco (Puebla, December 17, 1938-Mexico City, May 1, 2015), better known by the artistic name of «La India María» for the success of the homonymous character she had played, was an actress, comedian, singer-songwriter, dancer, screenwriter and Mexican filmmaker.
Velasco was born in the city of Puebla, La Resurrección Puebla, being the daughter of Tomás Velasco and María Elena Fragoso. He had a sister named Susy Velasco. She began her career as a star known for her dances at the Teatro Blanquita, and Velasco also participated as a radio actress, performing with actors such as José Jasso.
Miguel Morayta helped Velasco by giving him minor roles in his films. The Puerto Rican director Fernando Cortés (who later directed his films) was the one who told him to play an indigenous woman named “Elena María”. This one became the Indian Maria, with whom it had its first interpretation in the bastard (1968). He had 2 children, Goretti Lipkies (who acted in the Chespirito program in the 90s), and Iván Lipkies, product of his union with the Polish choreographer Vladimir Lipkies (Julián de Meriche).
He played his roles alongside actors such as Eulalio González “Piporro” in Ruletero en marchando (1962) and El rey del tomate (1963); Enrique Lucero in The Bloody Revolver (1964); and Fernando Soto “Butter” in The Rights of Children (1963)
Her latest film was La hija de Moctezuma, which premiered in 2014. Before that, she was absent from film and television for about 15 years, and in memory she recognizes herself as a first actress and completes her career.
Died in Mexico City on May 1, 2015.
