Abstract:
How has for over 500 years the Calpolli system of social organization and governance survived? Why is it important for Mexica communities to organize themselves into Calpoltin? These are the central research questions that underpin my work. In the process of answering these questions I have developed a liberating (decolonizing) research framework rooted in the Tlamanalcayotl. Through this framework an analysis of Nican Tlacah resistance movements for liberation and autonomy is undertaken in order to understand that we've been fighting for our traditional social systems of organization and governance. These Nican Tlacah ways of being are rooted in principles of self-sufficiency and sustainability that engender human societies that take care of their ecology. The Calpolli families having formed a union (establishing relationships of responsibility with one another) create a living community that is continually developing a way of being that is functional, practical, self-sufficient, and sustainable.
