aztlantv aztlantv is a bilingual, Xicano-Latino Indigenous collective commitment to give voice to Spanish-speaking and native communities. We use the power of words as a tool for change, truthfully documenting the injustices done to our peoples and lands, in order to involve our listeners in our quest for social and environmental justice. We use the power of the radio waves to plant the seeds of strength, knowledge, love, peace, wisdom and unity within the peoples of the land. As a “Voice for the voiceless,” we speak out against the disenfranchisement of indigenous peoples, communities of color, the undocumented, the immigrant community, the working class poor, women, children, elders and especially the natural environment. We are the underlying echo of those that believed in change and fought before us, so that we can do the same for the generations that exist and the generations that follow. We strive to move onto higher levels of awareness about the interconnections and fragility of all life, thereby sending out a message of hope for the coming generations. Using a tapestry of voices, music, soundscapes and clear, hard words, we raise collective consciousness towards a more harmonious global existence. At the same time, we also endeavor to soothe the pain of lonely and isolated individuals such as those in prisons and in hospitals. We move to ease the distress of the many lost souls in Aztlan. Historically, mainstream media outlets have discouraged Spanish-speaking and immigrant communities of color from participation in its political, social and economic decision-making processes and has ignored different perspectives, particularly those of the non-English-speaking peoples who live, work in and contribute to the well-being of the community at large. Aztlantv is dedicated to change the stranglehold monopoly of mass media by the dominant society and its special interest groups. Through innovative and creative radio programming, it is the intent of aztlantv to enlighten and empower those disenfranchised communities to rise up and participate as equal members of society. We, the members of aztlantv, continually try to reflect our unique worldview and reality to our audience. Empowering and engaging them, we can be the voice that incites the listeners to further personal growth, in a spirit of peace, dignity and solidarity, for the healing of our families and nations, and for the good of the hemisphere and the entire planet.
