During lunch, rapper/poet Iloheem performed.

 

Rapper/poet Scott Keltic Knot also joined to share his art.

 

Veronica Agustin and Citlalli Citlalmina Anahuac were invited to also conduct a workshop on Anahuac Women. They started the workshop by showing STOLEN GLORY, a mini-docu drama about the realization that a young Nican Tlaca comes to upon learning her history.

 

The workshop began with a discussion of what the experience was like for Veronica to participate in the film.

 

Naui Huitzilopochtli was also invited to do a workshop on Media, Racism, and Education. He showed some of his most powerful videos and the youth were definitely interested.

Tlazocamati to Veronica Malinalli Hernandez, shown here in her Mexica coat, for inviting us to be such a huge part of the conference. It is the very first time that a MECHA club invites us to share our work in such an intricate way. May we do this again.

Tlazocamati Veronica! And good luck on all of your goals! We know you will represent our people with knowledge, courage, and dedication!
