Acacitli (Nahuatl for "reed hare"; pronounced|aːkaˈsiʔtɬi) was a Mexica chief and one of the "founding fathers" of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire.

According to the "Crónica mexicayotl", his daughter Tezcatlan Miyahuatzin was married to Acamapichtli, the first "tlatoani" of Tenochtitlan, and gave birth to Huitzilihuitl. [Chimalpahin (1997): pp. 36–37.]
