Remembering Tonantzin

guadalupeFriday, December 12th was Día de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. La Virgen de Guadalupe has always held a special place in my heart even though I was not raised Catholic.

La Virgen de Guadalupe represents the mestizaje that we see in our culture. To some she is the mestiza Virgin Mary and to others she is Tonantzin, Mother Earth. She reminds us that regardless of our faith we are all connected.

It was fitting then that this past Friday, December 12th runners from SAGE Council held a prayer run at the Petroglyphs.
