California Agrees To Not Teach Students To Worship Aztec Gods After Lawsuit Settlement

     California’s plan to teach the worship of bloodthirsty Aztec gods has come to a halt after the state of California reached a settlement in a lawsuit against the teaching of chants to Aztec god as part of their “Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum”. This curriculum wasn’t just some social/historical educational roleplay:

“The religious narrative is even more disturbing. Cuauhtin developed a related ‘mandala’ claiming that white Christians committed ‘theocide’ against indigenous tribes, killing their gods and replacing them with Christianity. White settlers thus established a regime of ‘coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide,’ characterized by the ‘explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity.’ The solution, according to Cuauhtin and the ethnic studies curriculum, is to ‘name, speak to, resist, and transform the hegemonic Eurocentric neocolonial condition’ in a posture of ‘transformational resistance.’ The ultimate goal is to ‘decolonize’ American society and establish a new regime of ‘countergenocide’ and ‘counterhegemony,’ which will displace white Christian culture and lead to the ‘regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity.’

“This religious concept is fleshed out in the model curriculum’s official ‘ethnic studies community chant.’ The curriculum recommends that teachers lead their students in a series of indigenous songs, chants, and affirmations, including the ‘In Lak Ech Affirmation,’ which appeals directly to the Aztec gods. Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the power to be ‘warriors’ for ‘social justice.’ Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking ‘healing epistemologies’ and ‘a revolutionary spirit.’ Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for ‘liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization,’ after which students shout ‘Panche beh! Panche beh!’ in pursuit of ultimate ‘critical consciousness.’

“The chants have a clear implication: the displacement of the Christian god, which is said to be an extension of white supremacist oppression, and the restoration of the indigenous gods to their rightful place in the social justice cosmology. It is, in a philosophical sense, a revenge of the gods.”

     Unfortunately, this is only one small part of the indoctrination that is being inflicted on children in California.
