Takaji My Relatives
I am presently traveling in Texas doing ceremonial work here while Antonio is continuing his activities back East. We will be planning another Fire Ceremony and Sweatlodge for early December.
I have been travelling in Texas since this past Sunday Nov 13
My work in Texas has allowed me to connect with my Mexica brothers and sisters who live in this region of Aztlan and who see this area as part of the ancestral homeland from where the ancient Aztecs migrated south into the Valley of Mexico many years ago.
I am working with the sacred Maya Calendar Cholk'ij days chanelling healing energy in behalf of a number of individuals here including a family of K'iche Mayas who live in this area. I am also using my Taino traditional practices to cleanse and purify work areas and home environment that need to be rid of negative energy.
Looking forward to spending a few days at Fort Hood military base with Venezuelan friend Amanda (Vargas) Richmont, member of the Arawakan Guajira Indigenous nation to celebrate Full Moon Ceremony with a group of folks at her home, and then in Austin later this week to connect with fellow Tainos in that city, as well as individuals there working on projects that deal with the traditions of the Guatemala Mayas.

Many of the performance costumes are designed by Ana Maria herself. Here she shows me an authentic Taino mayohuacan drum created in Boriken
