The Aztecs

The Aztec is a Mexican-indian tribe and culture that isn't certain where it came from but people think it came from Spain.

People

The origin of the Aztec people is uncertain where they came from. Sometime during the twelfth century A.D. they began a long migration that brought them to the Valley a Mexico. They eventually established a capital at Tenochtitlán, now Mexico City. There they would rule until the Spanish conquest. They worshipped many gods and goddesses, each of whom ruled one or more human activities or aspects of nature. The people had many agricultural gods because their culture was based heavily on farming; also they included natural elements and ancestor-heroes.

Food

A txalcalli was often use in every aztec dish. The meat that they ate came from hunting: geese, ducks, deer, & rabbits. Aztec Fruit & Veggies were Xoars, Atole, Pozole, Maize, Beans, Avocados, Tomatoes and Squash.
