Our mission is to nurture healing through the reconnecting, practicing, and sharing of indigenous cultural identity, ancestral knowledge, and communal work, fostering a way of life for present and future generations.

Our Vision is to preserve indigenous cultural traditions to heal and build a sustainable, harmonious community.

Calpulli Tonalehqueh’s work is founded on the concepts of: 


Wisdom involves seeking, obtaining, and sharing indigenous knowledge and traditions. Harmony consists of striving for harmony with self, Mother Earth, the creator, and others. Culture refers to walking the Red Road, which includes: native arts, cultural productions, and a native worldview.


Tonalehqueh is a multilayered metaphorical term. It means “Those who accompany the sun along its journey.” It refers to those who individually and collectively strive to meet their full potential on earth and who take the characteristics of the sun as their goals for personal growth and existence. Like the Sun itself, we seek to be resplendent, strong, steady, life-giving, balanced, humble, virtuous, and creative.

Kind Words

"Calpulli Tonalehqueh was a wonderful addition to our original show featuring boxer Mario Barrios. Not only did they provide a beautiful presentation for cameras, but they also communicated and went above and beyond to create an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend Calpulli Tonalehqueh to anyone!"
