Tlaltecuhtli: Danza Azteca de Austin, Tejas in collaboration with our family at Resistencia Bookstore invites our native brothers and sisters to a platica with Capitana de Danza Azteca, Tonantzin Fernandez from Tlaxcalancingo, Puebla Mexico.

Ms. Tonantzin is a Capitana of Danza Azteca Chichimeca. She belongs to the Mesa de la Virgen de la Soledad of General Felipe Aranda (RIP), from Mexico City, DF Mexico.
