Tia is Headed to Atengo, Jalisco


Tia and the UVM brigade will be starting a new project in the last week of March in Atengo, so Laura is headed down in a couple of weeks to do the advance work with Dr. Roberto.  Atengo is both a small town and a municipality west of Guadalajara. The word Atengo is a Nahuatl (Nahuatl people are also referred to as Aztecs) word meaning: “at the edge of the water”.  This region is inhabited by the Nahuatl and before that, the ancient Toltec people.  The Nahuatl saw the Toltecs as their cultural and intellectual ancestors.
