  • Aztec Great Speaker
    5,818 words
    Aztec Culture Aztec Nation By: DJ XTC The Aztec Nation A distant sound is heard. It sounds like a deep drum being hit with a heavy instrument. You hear it again and strain your eyes in the direction of the sound. All around you is dense jungle. Snakes slither between your legs. You hear the sound once again. In front of you is a dense stand of ferns. You part them and look down into a wide open valley. The valley gets so wide and it is so green that it takes your breath away. But that is not wha...
  • Ruler Of Tenochtitlan And The Aztec Empire
    1,414 words
    Did the Expansion of the Aztec Empire Lead to Their Downfall? The Aztec Indians originated from a place called Aztlan, somewhere in north or northwest Mexico. At that time the Aztecs were a small, nomadic tribe living in the border territory on the margins of civilized Mesoamerica. (see mapI) In the 13th century they settled in the valley of central Mexico. The Aztecs finally found refuge on a small island in Lake Texcoco, where about 1345, they founded the town of Tenochtitlan. The island was f...
  • Aztec And Inca
    2,829 words
    Like the Athenians and Spartans of ancient Greece, the Inca and the Aztec bear resemblance to the two other ancient cultures. The Athenians and Incas were both more interested in developing their Arts as well as their military, but both the Spartans and the Aztecs were highly interested more so in warfare than religion. Although the Aztec and Inca never had to face each other, it is interesting to compare them because of their dominant positions of extremely large and powerful tribes. I am going...

    In this essay I will describe the civilizations of Africa and the New World. I will show how these great civilizations were alike and how they were not. The Africans and the Indians were alike in their rise to greatness, each achieving it through conquest. They were also alike in their means of survival; all were agricultural peoples. These two cultures both experienced tremendous wealth and all were a model for civilizations to come. All African societies shared one basic feature: a close relat...
  • Aztec People And Their Society
    1,002 words
    The Broken Spears is an eye-opening book about the Spanish Conquest of the indigenous people of Mexico, the Aztecs. This book is unique in that it gives a perspective of the Aztecs. Most of the time history is written from the viewpoint of the winners, and the Aztecs were by no means the winners of this encounter. What made this book so appealing was that great detail and passion in which the events were portrayed. It feels as if the reader was there watching or even partaking in the events duri...
  • Aztecs And The Spanish
    1,238 words
    Through written and artistic accounts of the first encounters between the Aztecs and the Spanish, we are able to see how the first impressions of each group affected how they dealt with each other. There is much evidence of the Spanish first impressions of the Aztecs, but because the Spanish destroyed most of the written and artistic accounts of these events, we are left with little evidence of the Aztec perspective towards meeting Cort " es and the Spaniards for the first time. However, with th...
  • Tenochtitlan While The Development Of The Aztecs
    1,156 words
    Growing up in the Untied States, I never really knew much about my heritage the first few years of my life. My teachers never really talked about other countries other then the United States. Well actually they did talk about them they just never really went into much detail about other heritage. I actually never knew there was more to my ancestors and how cheated I felt for not knowing or being taught about them. All I really knew about them was the Aztecs was that they did their certain human ...
