Susana De León
Leader of the Ketzal Coatlicue Aztec dance group in Minneapolis.
KetzalCoatlicue (Precious mother earth) is a Kalpulli (learning community) of Indigenous people joined by the desire to learn, share and live the tradition of Aztec dance. KetzalCoatlicue is a woman lead group. We pursue our spiritual, mental, and physical vocation with music from the sacred drum, conch shells, seeds and other instruments gifted by the natural environment. A majority of our members are youth from south Minneapolis but participating members ages range from toddlers to elders.
Ketzal Coatlicue Aztec dance group will perform at Noche Hispana Diez on Sunday June 15th, 2014 at 7:30pm. Learn more about Noche Hispana at nochehispana.org
