//092 Andria Dafne Pablo Sanchez, Vee’us Xiuh Janiki Yollotlpactli, revitaliser of Mexican mātauranga

November 1, 2021

Xiuh, as she likes to go by is of Mexican heritage (Mestiza, Nahua (Mexico)). For years she has worked to revitalise ancient Indigenous practices. Here in Aotearoa she shares temazcal, kinam and tezcatlipoca practices of old central Mexico. She is also a wisdom keeper of ancient Toltec traditions.

⁠In this episode Xiuh talks to us about the colonisation of Mexico and she shares how connecting with wāhine Māori challenged and inspired her to refocus her mahi on strengthening Indigenous cultural knowledge and practice.


I feel like being an Indigenous woman today is the gift of finding balance.
