#Repost @goodmindsindigenousbooks• • • • • •Introducing our Literature Collection, including "Why Indigenous Literatures Matter, paper ed (2018)" with Educator's Guide.Written with a generalist reader firmly in mind, but addressing issues of interest to specialists in the field, this book welcomes new audiences to Indigenous literary studies.

That’s impressive, and it’s done in a beautiful, intimate and at times playful way. Why Indigenous Literatures Matter was an honour to read. It is instructional without instructing, grounded, confident, affirming, generous, brilliant, clear and joyful. – Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, author of As We Have Always Done and This Accident of Being Lost For a complimentary Educator's Guide please visit our Facebook page.To review and order please visit our online catalogue GoodMinds.com: https://www.goodminds.com/why-indigenous-literatures-matter-paper-edEmail: orders@goodminds.comPhone:(519)753-1185Toll Free: 1-877-862-8483 (1-877-8NATIVE) (Canada & USA only)Fax: (519) 751-3136

Cuetlaxochitl Tarot Spread~~~This tarot spread is for Cuetlaxochitl (hide or leather flower) who is sacred to the Aztecs and was used as a resource for medicines and dye.Cuetlaxochitl blooms from October to February, and came to be associated with Huitzilopochtli (hummingbird of the south or left), the Aztec god of the sun, Lord of War and the patron of the capital of Tenochtitlán. The bright red flowers adorned temples to Huitzilopochtli. Caravans of people carried Cuetlaxochitl in packs on their backs from the botanical gardens in Oaxtepec, 60 miles away, to decorate and honor Huitzilopochtli.  Cuetlaxochitl came to represent the re-birth of light on Earth during the dark, winter months. This may be in relation to one version of Huitzilopochtli's origin story. Huitzilopochtli was born on the winter solstice, the longest night of the year.The story goes, Coatlicue (serpent skirt), mother of the Centzonhuitznahuah (400 southerners) and their older sister Coyolxauhqui (bells painted or on cheeks) was on Coatepec (Serpent Mountain) sweeping. A ball of feather down drifted from above and Coatlicue snatched it up and put it in the folds of her clothes. As soon as she finished sweeping she went to remove the feathers and nothing was there. At that moment, she concieved.Her children became angry with her and felt this mysterious pregnancy dishonored them. Coyolxauhqui rallied her siblings the Centzonhuitznahuac to kill their mother. Coatlicue hid until she gave birth to Huitzilopochtli, who was born full grown, dressed in armor and wielding weapons. He defeated the Centzonhuitznahuac turning them into stars, and his sister, Coyolxauhqui, was decapitated, her body tossed over the mountain to shatter into pieces and her head was placed in the sky as the moon.The symbolic association to the rebirth of light may be seen in Cuetlaxochitl's appearance, the red leaves represent the blood of sacrifice or the sacred life force and the leaf pattern of the flower around its center can be seen as the rays of the sun.~~~Deck: The Jade Oracle, The Toltec Oracle#nahuatl #nahuatlwords #nahuatllanguage #huitzilopochtli #cuetlaxochi #coatlicue #tarotspread #oracle

Cempoalxochitl Tarot Spread~~~This spread is for the Cempoalxochitl (20 petaled) flower, whose vibrant color and potent scent is used to lead the ancestors from the land of the dead into the home during Dia de Muertos. The story of the Cempoalxochitl begins with two children, Xochitl (flower) and Huitzilin (hummingbird) who shared a deep bond. They would climb the mountain to offer flowers and pray to Tonatiuh (Sun God) and in turn Tonatiuh would bathe them in warmth and bless the pair. With time, Xochitl and Huitzilin's bond grew deeper and stronger as they fell in love. Blessed by the rays of Tonatiuh, they swore to love each other for all time.Then war came and Huitzilin left to fight for his people. Word came to Xochitl that Huitzilin, wounded in battle, had died. Xochitl in her grief, ran to the top of the mountain and begged Tonatiuh to reunite her with her beloved Huitzilin. Tonatiuh moved by her prayers, touched her with a glowing ray of sunlight and turned her into a flower the color of the bursting sun, the Cempoalxochitl. In turn, Huitzilin was reborn as a Huitzacatzin/Huitzilin (hummingbird). Cempoalxochitl, her twenty petals remained closed until one day a curious Huitzacatzin landed on the flower and suddenly all twenty petals burst open with her radiant scent; the pair reunited once again.~~~Deck: Jade Oracle#nahuatlpractice #nahuatl#nahuatllanguage #nahuatlwords #diadelosmuertos #diademuertos #cempoalxóchitl #cempasuchil #huitzilin #dayofthedead #marigold #hummingbird #tarotreader #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotspread #oraclereader #oracle #oraclecardreading #oraclecards #oracledeck #jadeoracle #jadeoraclereadings #jadeoraclecards #jadeoracledeck #oraclereadersofinstagram
