The struggles of the indigenous people of Mexico

"There is a place that the Spirit of Truth has prepared
so that it shall be from there from which will be born
the Liberation of the Indigenous Peoples.
It is called AZTLAN, which means Paradise;
it is where the Spirit of Truth lives."

Yaqui Elder Rafael Guerrero, Coronel,
Division del Norte de Pancho Villa
