Comuna of the capital presents Educational Model of the Footprints of Acahualinca


Committed to strengthening our historical memory and national identity, the Mayor's Office of the Citizen Power of Managua, through the Directorate of Culture and Historical Heritage, inaugurated this Tuesday, April 20, the First Educational Didactic Model at the Museum Site Huellas de Acahualinca, which represents the Ancestral Family of Acahualinca.

The inaugural event was attended by the Vice Mayor of Managua, Enrique Armas Rosales, the Director of Historical Heritage, colleague Clemente Guido and the specialists who were part of the technical team for the elaboration of this model, Edgard Espinoza Pérez, Humberto Leon, Miriam Castillo and Miurel Vargas.

Comrade Clemente Guido announced that it is the first Didactic Educational Model that is produced, in order to enrich the memory and historical identity, promoted by Good Government led by Commander Daniel and the Vice President, Commander Rosario Murillo.

“Our young people, our students, ourselves, all of us who have been here, we have come, we have seen the footprints and we have imagined, that is, with our minds, what could have happened there? Who were they? As they were? But now we are going to have these Educational Didactic Models, where the boys are going to be able to take an idea with them ”, said the historian.

Likewise, he stated that the representations in the models do not go running, “they go walking because that was the process of movement of the ancestral families of Acahualinca, they are a family group that we do not know exactly what ties they had, but we do know that they were organized, and they were moving together, fleeing from danger and the danger at that time was the Masaya Volcano, which was erupting extremely violently ”, said Guido.

For his part, the Vice Mayor of Managua, Enrique Armas Rosales, stated that the elaboration of these models are part of the work carried out by the Municipality to turn this historic site into a comprehensive museum, "that it becomes a site of tourist attraction, that will allow to install with the proper conditions in the surroundings of the area, tiangues and that young people, scholars and tourists who come to visit, can also acquire some souvenirs, as is done in some museums in Latin America and other Continents " , shared the mayor of the capital.

The model illustrates people, children, youth, women and adults, as well as the animals that were walking when that event occurred thousands of years ago. It is estimated that the exact number of people that according to the tracks and archaeologists have determined, is 17 people.

The Sitio Huellas de Acahualinca museum is located west of Managua, a few meters from Lake Xolotlán and opens its doors to students and the general public.
