On October 18, 2020, we were joined by our close friend Jesus Sanchez. Jesus is a member of Quetzalcoatl Citlalli Aztec, who shared their sacred dance and blessings with Lion’s Roar in the Fall of 2019. Jesus shared with us more of the traditions and history of this lineage. Here’s more about his talk: Azteca & Traditional Healing Practices of Mexico: Jesus Sanchez is member of the Aztec Dance community of Northern California, a branch of the traditional dance lineage of Danza Azteca de Tenochtitlan, Mexico City. As a dancer and cultural artist, Jesus will be breaking down the epistemology of healing practices that are center to the traditional dance. The discussion will focus on Indigenous concepts of medicine, art, and the preservation of practices throughout varying histories of migration, resistance, and forging community.
