Tlaltlacayolotl ~ Earth, Heart, Man
Tlaltlacayolotl means earth, heart, man. We are descendants of the Aztec Tribe, from the center of Mexico where the Aztecs constructed their empire called Teotihucan. It has been more than 500 years since first European contact. We are a culture that have studied nature and the cosmos for centuries. Our dances reflect the cosmic universe and all that exists within mother earth. Our group is a family of four: father, mother, son, and daughter. Our dances and our culture have been passed down and learned through the generations. Our work is that the cultures of all the indigenous peoples are always together. In that way, we learn more of other cultures and each know of their own beauty. The indigenous world and we wish to teach that still, in this 21st century, one can learn of our culture. We teach the culture of Mexica. We do presentations at festivals, schools, and various events. With pre-hispanic music, pre-hispanic dance and explanations we teach of our culture. The presentations can be from 30 minutes up to 2 hours.
