Tlanezi is a contemporary Indigenous performance ensemble birthed by performance artist, and culture bearer Laura Yohualtlahuiz Ríos-Ramírez, featuring members of Kalpulli Ayolopaktzin. Tlanezi is a theatrical ritual performance troupe that invites us to witness the awakening of our warrior spirits and heed the call to love, honor, and connect with our self, each other, our ancestors, and our Creation.
Awakening out of 500 years of Resistance, we are the children of the sun! The spirits of the ancestors who could not be killed or silenced. We are healers, dancers, artists, creators, weavers of new futures. We are here!
