Art works by Filogonio Naxín 


Filogonio Naxín is a Mazatec visual artist from the indigenous community of Mazatlán Villa de Flores, Oaxaca, Mexico. This indigenous región is the birthplace of notable characters such as the medicine woman known as Maria Sabina, and the Flores Magón family, beginning with Ricardo Flores Magón, the renowned philosopher who was commemorated in 2022, one hundred years after his death. 


Filogono Naxín promotes indigenous cultures of Mexico and is a fluent speaker of the Mazatec language. His motivation to continue doing this work is fueled by the need for indigenous languages to remain relevant so that they don’t become extinct.
