Bienvenidos a Academia Cuauhtli / Welcome to Academia Cuauhtli

Welcome to Academia Cuauhtli as we work to go online as a Spanish language, cultural revitalization project as opposed to an in-person Saturday academy, this fall. Check out our website at where our community can locate COVID resources. Congratulations to Austin Independent School District teacher, Maestra Liliana Batista-Rodriguez, bilingual/dual language teacher extraordinaire, for not only producing excellent work, as you can see below, but is also leading others teachers with whom we are working, as well. Hats off to Texas State University Professor, Dr. Chris Milk, who along with Liliana, has worked closely over the years with our many maestras (teachers).

Thanks to our partners, namely, the Austin Independent School District, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, the Austin Area Association for Bilingual Education, The University of Texas at Austin, and the Indigenous Cultures Institute as we embark on our seventh year of operation, albeit in an online environment due to COVID. 

We are so grateful to all of the members of our community based organization, "Nuestro Grupo" (which means "Our Group," in Spanish), and our many volunteers, for keeping this work alive.

This is exciting!  More to come. 

Disfrute!  Enjoy!
