Mazatzin Casas Acosta, of Kickapoo and Chichimeca First Nations descent, devotes his life’s work to understanding and sharing the teachings of his culture, and in particular the Aztek Cosmology. He is a founding Board Member of the new International First Nations Academy; a member of the Frente Nacional Mexicano Pro Derechos Humanos; and a Peace Ambassador for the United Nations. For over 23 years he’s learned from many teachers from Mexico who had intensively studied the pre and post-Hispanic ‘codices’ and records as well as modern investigators. He also performed extensive independent research concerning the Olmek-Toltek-Maya-Zapotek-Mixtek-Aztek calendar system, along with 7 years of Astronomical Zenith confirmation of their relationship.
He is presently in collaboration with the Institute of Astronomy at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, UNAM, on the Aztek Calendar. His contributions to the application and use of the units of time have been reviewed by many other recognized scholars and traditional authorities such as the Supreme Nahuatl Counsel, who corroborate the importance of his work. He is recognized as a Tonalpouki… keeper and interpreter of the calendar count.
He met and meets with Elders, Teachers and calendar keepers from Onondaga (Canada) to Machu Picchu (Peru); from the Rain Forest of Brazil to the Valley of Anauak, Mexiko Tenochtitlan (aka Mexico City), to Los Angeles, California. The Aztekayolokalli team’s research helped to re-ignite the ceremonial fires of the 2nd Zenith passage of the Sun through sacred observatories in the past seven years. Every summer from July 25 to July 29 Mazatzin has led a group to the pyramid observatories in Teotiuakan, Mexiko Tenochtitlan, Malinalko, Tepoztlan and Xochikalko; confirming that the Aztek Calendar Day symbols correspond on Zenith observations dates to archaeological sites and to the ancient codices (Borgia).
