Discover the Art of Ancient Aztec Dance
Calpulli Tonalehqueh is an Aztec Dance Group based on the foundation of wisdom, harmony, and culture.
Aztec Dance presentations are available year-round for variety of audiences.
Calpulli Tonalehqueh’s work is founded on the concepts of:
WISDOM | HARMONY | CULTURE
Wisdom involves seeking, obtaining, sharing indigenous knowledge and traditions. Harmony involves 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.
