Indigenous education is multifaceted and interconnected with many aspects of a person’s holistic learning. Although schools are essential to learning, Indigenous people also create educational spaces within their communities to share knowledge with youth regarding ancestral practices, ceremonies, and responsibility. For this event, we will discuss one Indigenous educational space within the DFW area called Danza Mexica, or Aztec Dance, which has a rich educational history that spans many parts of Mesoamerica, specifically within central Mexico.  How can we learn from Danza Mexica and other Indigenous educational contexts? How can we encourage people to engage within their respective communities and experience knowledge sharing rooted in culturally sustaining teaching? The Danza Group Mitotiliztli Yaoyollohtli from Dallas will be invited for a two-hour event, with 45-60 minutes of traditional dance and a "plática" or dialogue guided by the chief and the other dancers about the connections between Danza Mexica and Indigenous education.
