Join COMPAS artist Susana de Leon and Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue for their performance at the State Capitol's Grand Opening Celebration. The Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue ("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. Ketzal Coatlicue pursues this 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 the members are youth, but participating members ages range from toddlers to elders. Ketzal Coatlicue’s cultural learning center is located in South Minneapolis.
