Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is a 15 year old indigenous environmental activist who is saving the world. He’s using his non-profit organization Earth Guardians to rally youth all over the planet to stand up and fight climate change. Through his Aztec traditions he’s learned that the earth is sacred and that we are all indigenous to the planet, thus we should all take care of it and give back. Kid Warrior showcases Xiuhtezcatl’s efforts thus far, juxtaposed with his normal life as a teenage boy.
