Ancestral Legacies in Lactation is a cohort based 4 week class for lactation care providers and support persons serving indigenous and Chicanx communities presented by Chichihualtia Perinatal and Family Wellness, and taught by Tecpaxochitl Mireya Gonzalez, indigenous Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, Founder of Chichihualtia, and Community Health Educator

Our lessons cover five Ancestral Guardians from the Mexica/Central Mexican Cosmology, Chalchiuhtlicue, Mayahuel, Xochiquetzal, Mictecacihuatl and Tlazolteotl as documented in the Borgia Group Codices and other 16th Century primary sources. We take an interdisciplinary approach to interpreting the codices, integrating information from the social sciences, public health, perinatal health, and anecdotal narratives.
