Aztec Contributions to Our World

Presented by

Dawn Martinez Oropeza



Through this interactive workshop, Dawn and Juan Carlos will focus on Aztec history and their contributions to Mexican culture, as well as their connections with nature, astronomy, and the arts. Dancing and drumming will reinforce these teachings. Students will learn several words in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, which is still spoken by 1.4 million people in Mexico. Students will experience the wholeness of the Mexican society through a traditional blessing dance which reinforces students’ knowledge about the four seasons and the movement of the planets.
