Movement traces the ways in which fluid bodies actually move through the world. A composite image of the one legged trickster god from the few and brief allusions to Mesoamerican culture in Castillo's work and from anthropological studies of Tezcatlipoca and argue a shape-shifting inspired Castillo model. On the contrary, value of leg braces, medication, and public transportation as means of moving beyond has a body limit. Moreover, “Rethinking Body Politics” serves as consideration by feminist politics that might look like the movement is fore grounded and permeability over identity serves as the conclusion.

Keywords:   movement, fluid bodies, Mesoamerican culture, shape-shifting, Tezcatlipoca, Ana Castillo
