Previous Virtual Mexica New Year 2021
Due to the current pandemic, last year's ceremony was broadcast live from San Jose, CA, and streamed through two platforms, YouTube and Facebook Live. We needed to keep our yearly ceremony alive and active for everyone to enjoy from the comfort of their homes where they felt safe. Now more than ever we must remember the ancient ways of taking care of our bodies, our homes, and preserving the culture.
