On behalf of the Xica Media family, we lift our voices up in prayer for Jefe Manolo Sanchez as he voyages to Mictlan. We lift our voices in prayer for his family Lulu, Nana Yvette and their children. Jefe Manolo was a deeply respectful/respected elder in our community who opened the door for generations of our Xicanx detribalized peoples to return to their ancestral danzas and life ways. May his spirit soar like an eagle as he gathers with his ancestors. Nikan ka Jefe Manolo! You are missed all across this continent!!!
