"How can truth best be spoken?" asked the Aztec philosopher Cuahtencoztli. "It is only in poetry - xochicuicatl - flor y canto - that we can express truth," replied Prince Tecayehuatzin. A new age is dawning, Sexto Sol, the Sixth Sun, and the indigenous inhabitants of the Americas speak to both the past and the future in this volume of poetry, fiction, essay and art. From a project that began with old maps and Aztec codices, here flourishes a truth suppressed by the European conquest. It is a truth suppressed but not forgotten: We belong. Editors Roberto Rodrigue and Patrisia Gonzales are well known activist-journalists and the authors of the weekly and syndicated "Column of the Americas."
