Nahuacalli Educators Alliance
Since formation in 1994, TONATIERRA has implemented a cultural competency program that has been described a "paradigm shift" in terms of educational services and methodologies. Known as the Xinachtli, "seed", the program is a holistic approach to the Indigenous Peoples need for cognitive development beyond the conceptual constraints of colonization. For the Indigenous Mexican communities and families who are the base constituency of TONATIERRA, this program has led to the formation of the Nahuacalli Educators Alliance, a professional association of educators working with TONATIERRA to deliver a suite of educational services built around indigenous language revitalization strategies. In 2015, the Nahuacalli became and affiliate of the Continental Network of Indigenous Universities of Abya Yala.
