 Ahuehuetes de ChapultepecAhuehuete, del náhuatl "viejo del agua", por sus raíces: atl: "agua" y huehuetl: "viejo". Considerado en la época prehispánica un árbol sagrado. Aun forma parte de ritos y leyendas. Según Heyden (1993) se dice que los dioses y los primeros caciques mixtecos de Apoala tuvieron su origen: "...en las ramas de arboles majestuosos que crecían en un río sagrado". El Ahuehuete tiene propiedades curativas, tanto en las hojas como en el cono y corteza. Tenemos la obligación de cuidar, proteger y fomentar la permanencia de los Ahuehuetes en Chapultepec como parte de un patrimonio vivo que entregaremos a las siguientes generaciones.
English translation: Ahuehuetes of Chapultepec Ahuehuete, from the Náhuatl words meaning "old man of the water" (atl: "water" and huehuetl: "old"). Considered in the pre-Hispanic era a sacred tree, it is still part of rites and legends. According to Heyden (1993) it is said that the gods and the first Mixtec chieftains of Apoala had their origin: "... in



the branches of majestic trees that grew in a sacred river." The ahuehuete has healing properties, both in the leaves and in the cone and bark. We have the obligation to care for, protect and encourage the permanence of Ahuehuetes in Chapultepec as part of a living heritage that we will deliver to the next generations.
