Default The Nation of AZTLAN & MEChA


There has been a grass-roots movement in the U.S. for about 30 years to establish the Southwest as the Nation of Aztlan. Aztlan is the mythical aboriginal home of the Aztec people.

Quote:
The name of this organization shall be the National Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de
Aztlán (MEChA).
Quote:
Chicano and Chicana students of Aztlán must take upon themselves the responsibilities to promote Chicanismo within the community, politicizing our Raza with an emphasis on indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicano people for the purpose of liberating Aztlán.

This is happening right under our noses, I believe. No one I ask about this is even aware of it. I'm talking about East coast white people, BTW. Are any of you aware of this movement? Has it been discussed here yet?
