La Tlaltecuhtli is the Mexica Earth goddess, she represents the land itself. I the creation stories her physical body and its features became the world we live on: her skin became grasses and small flowers; her hair became the trees, flowers, and herbs; her eyes became springs and wells; her nose became the smaller mountains and valleys; her shoulders the larger mountains; and her mouth became the caves and rivers. In thinking about our indigeneity as Xicanx people I see it as a reconnection with the land we came from, wherever that might be throughout this continent we come from the land just as our ancestors. To claim our indigeneity is to research where our people came from, understanding the colonial process and violence they faced, with the hopes to better understand who we are. We may never be connected to those lands like our ancestors, but they will always be a part of who we are.
