Presented by La Vecindad at Mi Chantli, this event will embrace, honor, and celebrate indigenous culture and heritage though the lens of ancient Mexican traditions. This event will engage the community through art, songs, dance, food and bookmaking workshops, to help amplify and reclaim indigenous heritage and wisdom. From Oct. 8 and 9, we’ll hold activities such as bookmaking workshops pertaining to Aztec glyphs from the Aztec Sun Stone. In Danza Azteca, newcomers observe while performers begin with an ofrenda followed by ceremonial dance and rituals that vary with the season.

Mi Chantli will facilitate creating art and books using printmaking techniques with urban stamps. The projects and workshops are intended to educate and teach the Mexican language, Nahuatl. Traditional native foods will be served and prepared. Tamales will be offered and tortilla making stations will be set up to discuss and expand on the blessings and importance of the corn to the many indigenous tribes of this continent. 

Register for any of these workshops through Mi Chantli's Google Form.
