At this public event, attendees will experience and observe Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl’s Danza Mexica Tititl Ceremony honoring our earth’s phase of elderhood. Danza Mexica, also known as Aztec Dancing, is a cultural dance tradition widely practiced throughout California and nationwide with origins dating back to ancient Mesoamerican ceremonies of Mexico and Central America. We welcome you to visit Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural's booth for information about how to connect with indigenous ways and practices.
Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl was created with the mission to diffuse Indigenous Mexica culture and educate our Northeast San Fernando Valley communities through cultural art workshops, presentations, and ceremonies. Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl is a community of people that dedicates itself to increasing self-awareness through cultural and ancestral teachings that guide, inspire, and ignite paths forward. Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl works with multiple groups throughout the San Fernando Valley and is part of the Confederation of Cemanahuac, based out of Mexico City. Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl was founded in 2001 and practices out of Sun Valley Recreational Park in Sun Valley, CA.
Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore--with a mission to transform community through ancestral knowledge, the arts, literacy and creative engagement--is honored to host this project called The Indigenous in Us: Embracing Ancestral Knowledge & Sharing the Beauty of Practice. Kalpulli Xochiyaoyotl Ceremonia de Tititl is part of our series of free public cultural events. Showcasing Northeast San Fernando Valley community-based indigenous practices of Native Mexica and local Native American groups benefit individual and social wellbeing through the sharing of ancestral knowledge and arts.
