Starting at 22nd & Bryant
The Rescue Culture Collective
invites you to the 37th annual Procession
In the tonalpohualli, the sacred Aztec calendar, Saturday November 2, 2019 honors:
Mazatl (Deer) and is governed by Tlaloc (God of Rain & Thunderstorms) as its provider of tonalli (Shadow Soul) life energy. Mazatl is the day of the hunt. It is a good day to stalk your quarry, a bad day to be stalked. Mazatl is a day for breaking old routines and to pay attention to the routines of others. These are good days to fulfill old obligations; bad days to go back on one’s word.

EL COLECTIVO’S MOTTO
Since our founding, El Colectivo Del Rescate Cultural, our guiding "motto" has been, "NUESTROS MUERTOS NO SE VENDEN," (Our Dead Are Not For Sale).
No city, state, federal, nor corporate-branding funding is accepted. This has been the case since our inception, more than three decades ago, in order to maintain our integrity of being a true grassroots organization, without being beholden to political or consumerist demands on our mission of producing an authentic Ritual Procession as closest to our Meso American and Mexican roots. We invite all cultures to join us on Nov. 2nd, 2019, to honor and remember those who have passed on.
Start at Bryant and 22nd Street, proceeds on Bryant to 24th Street, then down 24th to Mission Street, then moves along Mission to 22nd Street. The route then goes along 22nd to Bryant Street, for the closing ritual, then onward to the Festival of Altars.
Please bring flowers, votive candles, photos, and offerings. This is an alcohol free family event. All are welcome!
