Matlalcueitl (also Matlalcueyetl or Matlalcueje or "Matlecueye") (She of the Green/Blue Skirt)(perhaps translating as "jade-skirted") is a goddess of life-giving rain and of song in Tlaxcalan mythology. They gave her name to a now dormant volcano Matlalcueitl. The Tlaxcaltecah were a separate group of Nahuatl speakers that were subjugated to the Aztecs at the time of the Spanish colonization of the Americas. In Aztec mythology, Matlalcueitl was identified with Chalchiuhtlicue and with her consort, the ancient rain god Tlaloc.
