The title of the journal refers some intellectual, cultural, and historic influences on the Chicana/o Community. Regeneración is the Spanish for regeneration, but is also the title for the newspaper published by the Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM) during the Mexican Revolution. The PLM was in many ways the ideological impetus for much of the radically progressive factions of the Mexican Revolution, which was made possible by the publication and distribution of their newspaper. Second, Tlacuilolli is the Nahuatl for written and is related to the term tlacuilo, which was the title given to pre-colonial scribes of Mexico-Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Together, Regeneración Tlacuilolli refers to the regenerative and revolutionary potential of widely distributed written work in the field of Raza Studies.
