— A Native American religious leader from Mexico will be visiting the Mott Community College campus again this year to conduct a special ceremony designed to promote cultural and racial harmony.
Francisco Jimenez Sanches is the keynote speaker scheduled for MCC’s 18th Annual Peace & Dignity Ceremony.
While this program celebrates all cultures, it is also MCC’s signature event commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month.
The program begins at 10 a.m., Oct. 11 and will be held outdoors (rain or shine) on the lawn of the Curtice-Mott Complex, adjacent to the MCC faculty/ staff-parking ramp.
Refreshments will be served following the program. This event is free and open to the public.
Sanches, who serves as “Tlakaelel,” or advisor to the Council of Anahuak (an Aztec word for a place where eagles soar), is a Mexica/Tolteca elder who teaches and serves as heir and guardian of oral traditions.
The Peace & Dignity program is sponsored by MCC’s Office of College & Community Advancement and the Multi-Cultural Minority Affairs Advisory Committee.
