Developed by Temachtiani Akaxe after studying the Huehuetlahtolli, Tonalpohualli, Chronicles & consejos from his Maestros & Elders in his Native Community in Mexico, these are the foundational principles of our school, Mahtinauhkalli, of Machtia Toltekatl, and the way we conduct ourselves in community.
Our hope is to teach this so that these principles infuse not only the interactions in our organized spaces, but our student’s lives outside of our walls as well. By embodying these principles, we hope they may positively impact the larger community.
Temachtiani Akaxe always reminds us that it is important to remember to strive to be honest while being respectful, and to be respectful while being honest.
It is also important to understand that it is through gratitude that we should serve and strive to be useful, not through sacrifice.
