Subject: Azteca Web Page Date: Sat, 11 Oct 1997 09:22:09 -0700 From: ismaelmartinez28@prodigy.net (Ismael Martinez) I think that the Azteca Web Page is an educational site which interests all those of us who come from Latino descent. And it also interests those from other cultures because they learn what's up with our culture. We have the most beatiful culture in the universe and I thank you for promoting it. The Azteca Web Page is educational and informative!!

Date: Thu, 14 Aug 1997 14:56:47 -0400 (EDT) From: Rodebaughs@aol.com To: mario@azteca.net Hello! As an American history teacher (of Anglo American descent) of 7th and 8th grade I find this site a wonderful resource for educating myself and directing the students I teach, who are also primarily European descent, to a reliable source of information. A great multicultural resource for all; thank you for sharing! What better way to study a group's contributions to America than by studying their own stories. Susan Rodebaugh 827 Frank Rd.

Subject: Web Site Date: Tue, 05 Aug 1997 18:53:13 -0700 From: Veronica Hernandez To: mario@azteca.net To whom it may concern (Mario), Firstly, I just want to applaud your presentation of the culture and people of Mexican descent. I just wanted to ask something, have you thought of translating everything into Spanish? The reason I am asking is because I am working with a group of students (age 9 - 17) who are classified as migrant students in Arizona. Anyways, when I asked them to find some things about the culture, many of their searches came up to this site. Unfortunately, those that only know Spanish were not able to use the information because they did not understand it. I explained as much as I could, but because of time limitations, I was not able to give them the individualize attention I would of liked to give. I completely understand that translating everything into Spanish is time consuming, but please consider it if possible. Again, gracias por todo la informacion.

Subject: azteca.net Date: Sat, 10 May 1997 19:42:32 -0700 From: "Rafael R. Solorzano" To: mario@azteca.net Dear Mario, i would like to commend you for your well done job in establishing a network component for the Chicano community. I was very proud to find it and find out that a person of your caliber is still interested in his heritage and nevertheless is constructing a positive networking system for everyone. I also would like to thank you for including MEChAs in your page, as you know for Mechistas it is difficult to get in contact with other Chicanos and what you have done was a good. I would also like to thank you on behalf of a chicano student doing research, your chat room is great. once again i hope you can continue this raising of self consciousness for our gente in aztlan. Muchas Gracias y Mexicathui. Amicalement(French), Rafael R. Solorzano nouvas@msn.com

Thanks for getting the Raza online; I applaud your efforts. I am head of the MEChA educational committee at the University of Texas at Austin. Your site has been helpful in educating ourselves about our indigenous culture. In your page, you ask for suggestions, so here's one. Maybe a current events page? Where information about marches, forums and other participatory activities could be posted. For example, the web page for Coordinadora 96, the Human Rights march on Washington D.C. scheduled for October 12, at http://www.coordinadora.org/ could be placed on this bulletin board. Do you know of any other centralized web sites such as this? At any rate, you will no doubt hear from me again as soon as I get MEChA's web page in order. Hasta pronto, --Dio
From: Ismael Chavez chavezi@oxy.edu To: mario@azteca.net Date: Fri, 27 Sep 1996 22:52:36 -0700 Subject: The Fourwinds Student Movement I'm impressed by the success of your web page. You've done a good job on the Web page. I'm an Organizer for the Fourwinds Student Movement, the same movement responsible for a great majority of the Anti-Prop 187 rallies in California, and also the movement responsible for the Hunger Strike in response to the closing of affirmative action programs in the University of California. At this momement, The Fourwinds is organizing a mass national recruitment program, where we are trying to identify the student organizers and leaders across the country who share the same beliefs and philosophy that the Fourwinds follows -- the Fourwinds in a multi-ethnic coalition of students. I've identified your web page as being one of the best Raza pages in the country, and the Fourwinds is requesting your assistance. We were wondering if you could post a link to our new (somewhat preliminary) web page on your site. The symbol below identifies the movement (the Olin).
Here's the web page site: http://www.oxy.edu/~chavezi/4winds.html I hope you can assist us in our recruitment process. Thanx bro.

Although I grew up my entire life hearing the terms Mexicano, Chicano, Latino, and the "H" word, it wasn't until I decided to minor in Latino and Latin American History that I truly understood the connotations of all of the above mentioned words. Today, (and always) I am a Chicana. I haven't found it anywhere in your page yet - but I also think that we have to address the issue of what a Chicano/Latino/*-American "looks" like. Because of my fair skin and green eyes I often hear "You don't look Mexican." "So what in God's name does a Mexican look like?" is often my response. I may be "white" on the outside but I'm as brown as you get on the inside. Even my own RAZA has chastised me. That bothers me even more than hearing those comments from mainstream USA. By address this issue I mean that we have to acknowledge the fact that we all don't look indigenous. But enough about that. I tend to ramble when I feel passionate about something close to my heart. I can never say thank you enough to all of our brothers and sisters that were involved in the political and social movements of the 1960's and 70's. Without their courage and determination, the cauza would have been lost. In their honor the Chicanismo of the 1990's must not be taken lightly. And to you Mario - all the power. The Movimiento needs people like you as beacons directing us towards unity. MIL GRACIAS. my address: Teresa_Solis-Pedroza@sedgus.com

Actually I have been moving very slowly at most things. I teach in the elementary and bilingual education program full time so that keeps me busy on a good day. Cultural News: There is a special screening of the Tomas Rivera story on Friday, March 22 at 7:30 at the California Theater in San Bernardino. It is a high school scholarship fund raiser at $5.00. For the artsy or minglers there is a VIP reception et al that includes a copy of the book "And the Earth did not swallow him"-a Chicano story of growing up in the 50's and 60's, $25.00. But on to dance, here on campus the students have started a group. I have only connected with a few of them, having not made a practice due to scheduling constraints and the need to realistically not start practicing yet. I do not usually surf the web and yours was the first page I encountered that was not of a group or University that came up. I found the web to be rather culturally limited. But this may just be a function of my lack of usage or browsing skills. I have seen the PBS Chicano Series information but that is about all I have turned up. If you time cruise my home page and give me feedback, please. I plan to make some more adjustments to it soon. It is at http://soe.csusb.edu/soe/faculty/IndivHP/torrez/NTINDEX.html and then school of education, and then elementary ed faculty and finally to my name. Keep in touch. Let me know about any folklorico that is happening your way. Hay te ...

I was a Chicano student activist at Fresno State from 1969 to 1973. I had not heard or seen much since then that would indicate that we had any impact or that the movimiento is even remenbered by young people today. It does my heart good to know that not everybody became "Hispanic" and that there are still Chicanos in the world. I am currently in Pennsylvania persuing a PhD. but, my eyes are on Aztlan.

To: mario@azteca.net From: "Andrea O. Martinez" andi@rt66.com Subject: The Aztec Web Page Dear Mario: I happened across your WONDERFUL work a few minutes ago and had to drop you a "complementary" Gracias y Felicitaciones!!!...on the work exibited here. I was looking for information on the Aztecas and their Nahuatl language for reasons that I wish to share with you now. I am a horse breeder living presently in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was raised in Jalisco, Mexico and fell in love with the culture, tradition and horses there. It was not until 7 years ago that I came in contact with a breeding program established in Mexico, in the Centro de Reproduccion de Pedro Domecq in Texcoco near Tenochtitlan, El Caballo de la Raza AZTECA!!! Mexico, finding itself many years ago in the predicament that they really did not have a breed of horse, with the Criollo breed of many years back, finding itself near the verge of extinction, decided it was time to "develop" a breed of National importance...a breed they could call their own, as other countries of the world. The Mexican "Azteca" horse...is a new breed. Not very well known to many people. I only hope that since you mentioned in your web page, the potential for different subjects that may be of interest...I feel I have much information to offer and hope to hear back from you as well. Please feel free to e-mail me at home : andi@rt66.com Again, you have done a marvelous job!!!!!!!! Sin mas, yo soy.... Andrea (Andi) Martinez Rancho San Marcos Criadores de Caballos de la Raza Azteca

En la definicion de Chicano se nesecita incluir aquellos que no son de desendiencia Xicana y que sigen en la lucha politica en contra del neo-colonialismo Anglo,como por ejemplo,el Maestro Escalante, que viene de Bolivia.....Chicanismo transiende Nacionalismo, porque aqui TODO Latino es un Xicano... preguntale a cualquier Anglo si sabe la diferencia entre un Peruano o un Quintanaroense de Chetumal. Es en esta inclusion de todo Latino que quiera participar en la ardua Lucha de Liberacion donde radica gran parte de nuestro futuro. atentamente fernando
Date: Fri, 15 Dec 1995 13:37:46 -0600 (CST) From: Nicolas Retana nretana@tenet.edu To: mario@azteca.net Subject: Azteca Page I love your home page. It's especially gratifying to see the young raza read the material that you have included here. I'm currently a doctoral student at UT Austin on a fellowship in a program called the Cooperative Superintendency Program. As such, I have been a high school teacher, assistant principal, and principal; one of the things that always bothered me was that the younger Chicano generation was oblivious to the pioneers that marched, fought, sweated for equal opportunity. In the 70's, we would never have thought of killing each other with driveby's, etc. Our unity was based on our Chicanismo and the fact that we knew that things needed to change for us to get anywhere. I hope that more of the young students realize that they should never remain ignorant of our history. A tremendous and classic book is by Rudolfo Acuna who wrote Occupied America. In the area of fiction, Dagoberto Gil's, The Magic of Blood is inspiring. Sigue luchando. Nicolas Retana
From: Juan Serrano jserrano@ucla.edu To: mario@azteca.net Subject: Azteca Web Page Hi Mario... My name is Juan Serrano, and I would just like to say that this web page is great. I had just come back from the library here at school, I took out some books on the Nahuatl language because I really want to learn how to speak, or at least write it. So I did a search for "Nahuatl" and presto, your page pops up first. I was surprised to see that there were pages on this. Its great to see that we as a people, slowly but surely, are regaining our identity and culture. I can't say much today...because I have a midterm for chem in about nine hours and I should really hit the books and get some sleep. I'll be visiting your page when I have time. laters, Juan.

Date: Mon, 06 Nov 95 22:49:56 -0600 From: Maria Cristina Villalobos cristina@owlnet.rice.edu To: mario@azteca.net Subject: Azteca WEb Page Mario, Your Azteca Web Page looks good. I haven't browsed through everything, yet. But I did read the informative article on "What is a Chicano?" It was pretty interesting. I'm from Texas, actually from the Rio Grande Valley (southern tip of TX), but we don't normally call ourselves Chicanos, but Hispanics, or just plain Mexicans. Through my graduate study, it's been interesting to note the various names our people give themselves depending on the location they come from. Speaking to my professor who grew up in L.A. (Dr. Richard Tapia), regards himself as a Chicano, while I am a Mexican, Mexican-American, or Hispanic, though I'm now incorporating the term Latina and using Mexican-American more, and again it depends also which type of people you're with. A little about myself: I'm a 2nd year grad student at Rice Univeristy (Houston ) in Computational Mathematics. I'm from the Rio Grande valley and my parents are from Hualahuises, Nuevo Leon, which is close to Linares and Monterrey. Hasta luego, Cristina

Anyways, I don't know how I got onto your page but it seems that you have put a lot of work into your page and are proud of your chicano culture. Well, I'm in an organization here similar to Mecha and we need more culture. I'd like to see if you can provide me your www address because dios only knows how I got into this. Also spread the word that there is a Chicano movement in North Texas. I work with Dr. Jose Angel Gutierrez in his new center for Mexican American Studies and we just staged a conference where 350 students came and protested 187 and such. But we feel alone. All the world knows about Mecha in CA but in TX there is little organized action. Anyways its a great pleasure to bump in to your page and keep up the great work. Michael_Vega@acd.org

I just finished reading some of the information on the Aztec Page and it is really great! I also liked the links to the other MECHA home pages. This is a really short message because I don't have much time but I just wanted to let you know that you are doing a great job with the page and I look forward to reading the rest of the information you have. One question, how often do you update it? (Mario's answer: when I feel inspired to stay up late into the night working on this page.

I strongly support what you are doing in trying to educate the raza about themselves and myself. Keep doing what you're doing. What I am wondering is if you have heard about the national walk out on october 12 in protest of federal and local governments attempting to deny that racism is gone thus there is no more need for affirmative action. If you have heard about it continue to spread the word for there is always power in numbers. Another thing going on here at the UofA is the AACHE conference we at UofA MEChA are organizing. it's a statewide conference but out of state students are also invited. The theme is Mano a Mano Forming a Conscious Movement. the date will be October 6-8 and we will have many inspiring speakers talking about important Chicano issues such as affirmative action and 187 policies. The event will include comida and a dance also closing with cultural activities like a Danza Azteca. If you or anyone you Know is interested in attending then give me a Fax # to send you the details. If room and board would be a problem for anyone let them know that we can help. Hope to here from you soon. By the way I'm also from LA. Josue "the Loco" Limon

I have only taken a look at part of it and I already love it. Good work Mario. I have a possible addition to your section on Mexican American Entertainment. I grew up in Pico Rivera, California and there was a place in El Monte that my family would go to for brunch after mass or for some special occassion (Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.). I haven't been there in over 4 years but they had some pretty good Mariachi. The place was called "Cielito Lindo, and I believe it is on Santa Rita just north of the Pomona freeway.

I want to first tell you that I think your Site is great. I am of Aztec descent, and while searching for some education about my heritage, I was steered your way. I've been greatly interested in seeking out the origin of my name and people. I'm a Reliability Engineer with Lockheed Martin Space Operations Company at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. I'm 40, married, three kids and I make a great pot of Menudo. I grew up in Lawndale Ca. near Redondo Beach. I barely speak Spanish because my parents thought that, with an accent I would be more likely to encounter descrimination as they did when young. The main point of this letter is to say that, I would be very happy to see more of the people of our heritage realize their potential. To see more and more of the Raza on a path in the main stream of the professonal world makes me feel very proud. Coming from a very poor, sometimes not too bright, but happy big Mexican family, I grew up with very low goals , but a deep opinion that there was more in the world than I was used to. We need to reach all of the Raza and convince more of us that as a people, we are second to none when it comes to offering a strong and talented spirit with a unique perspective of life-- a gift from our ancestors, to professional ranks. When we shine, we can shine! We have to make others aware, they have alot to offer this world, we have to learn to mix the passion of our blood with the knowledge and pride of our ancestors. Your Site is a great place to help people gain some valuable info. Lot's of great informaion. If you are ever in Florida, I would be happy to escourt you and your Family on a tour of the Space Center and offer you a warm Tortilla. Thanks for your time and talent, Mario.

Soy Cheryl Heigh, y le escribo del estado de N.Y. Queria decirle que su Web page es completamente maravillosa. Todavia no he investigado todo lo que hay dentro de la pagina Azteca, pero lo que ya he visto, me facina! Busco mas informacion sobre el idioma de los Otomis del estado de Hidalgo, y en verdad, cualquier informacion sobre ellos. Tambien, (una cosa completamente diferente!) I have made several unsuccesssful attempts to join a fanclub for the group, Bronco, because I want to find out where they will be appearing (and if they still are!) Any chance you can direct me? Me interesa todo de Mexico, aunque soy de aqui. Perhaps it is because for the past several years, I have become immersed in Mexican and Tejano culture due to my job. I have traveled to Mexico several times, to learn more and more about el lindo pais. I went especially to find out about the schools in the pueblitos, because I work with many people que vienen de pueblitos chiquitos of various parts of mexico, (but especially Hidalgo, Gto., Puebla) Me enamore de mexico hace unos a&ntildeos, and I hope to go and live there for a time and work in the field of education. Meanwhile, a seguir aprendiendo todo lo que pueda...with the help of your Web page. I can't wait to continue investigating! Muchas gracias!!!

Although most of the information you have illustrated I have already studied, other students, whether of latino descent or not, can learn a great deal regarding our exemplary Mexican culture via the internet. I will speak highly of your Web Page to friends. One suggestion I do have for you is in the regards of putting up links to actual web pages in Mexico. Some university home pages in Mexico also contain a great deal of useful information. Or even better yet, I have heard of a college student in Swarthmore College putting up a home page illustrating up to the minute information on the Zapatista movement in Chiapas, Mexico. I did not keep a record of this home page, but I would recommend that you do research and find the home page. It would make an excellent addition to the Aztec Page.
