As you generously support Teomati, you’re contributing to the wellbeing of indigenous communities in México, their cultural sovereignty, and the protection of their territories.
Here we provide a window into the specific communities we’re currently in allegiance with.
Ayotuxco is a Hñathö (Otomí) traditional community part of the “Holy Water Forest” that actively promotes ecological regeneration and cultural preservation.
This region, located in Huixquilucan, State of México, is known as “Bosque de Agua” due to its enormous importance in terms of water catchment and its ability to supply the vital liquid to more than 25 million people in the states of Mexico, Morelos, and Mexico City.
In spite of the different protected natural areas found in the region, the unregulated urban sprawl poses a constant threat, which has generated a significant loss of fauna and forest cover.
The cultural viability of the Hñathö people is in peril, alongside the health of the Holy Water Forest and numerous endangered species, including: deer, armadillo, coyote, wolf, mountain lion, and axolotl (endemic salamander and cultural icon).
“We are creating projects that support the regeneration of our ecosystem, the conservation of our mother tongue, and our offerings to the mountains by being resilient against the monster disguised as progress.”
