The summer sun was represented by Kuauhtli, the Eagle by the ancestral nations of Mesoamerica. Just like the Eagle, the Summer Sun flies high, strong, and persistently. It is both beautiful to behold yet you don't want to be out in the open without protection. Just like the Eagle, this summer is going to be filled with high levels of activity and we are looking forward to it! And with so much going on, we definitely will have to call upon our inner Kuauhtli's to make it all happen and enjoy every bit!
