Persona History:

Not much is known for certain about Tenochcacuicatl Delmar. Even his name has been brought into question at times. It is said that he is of noble birth from a Spanish father and a Mexica mother who left their stations for a life of exploration, a pathway that he himself has followed. As a traveler, Tenoch enjoys seeing the many customs and cultures of the world, learning as many bardic and musical traditions as he can from each of his experiences and encounters. Along the way, he does his best to advocate for the diversity of the world's cultures, which of course includes sharing the cultures of his heritage and its origins in what is known as the "New World."

Interests:

  • Music, Performance, and Bardic from anywhere in the world
  • Languages in General
  • Mesoamerica, with specialties in the Aztec Empire and Classical Nahuatl (Language).
  • Period Iberia
  • The blending and interaction of cultures in period.
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity initiatives.
  • Health concerns that affect performers in the SCA.
  • Awareness and advocacy for disabled and injured performers.
