  34. Ancient cultures! Hi! we´re Lizbeth and Ceci and we are going to talk to you about the ancient Aztec culture that is so interesting because it is very important in Mexico´s history.

  35. Thedestruction ofthe4suns!

  36. The first sun was called Nahui-Ocelotl, "Jaguar." According to the Aztecs, humankind was first destroyed by jaguars, which they considered to be the nahualli ("animal disguise") of the creator: a God named Tezcatlipoca. • At the end of the second sun, Nahui-Ehécatl, "Wind," a magical hurricane transformed all people into monkeys. That disaster was caused by “Quetzalcóatl” (the Feathered Serpent God) in the form of wind. • A rain of fire had put an end to the third sun, Nahuiquiahuitl, "Rain." Tlaloc, God of thunder and lightning, ruled that period. • The fourth sun, Nahui-Atl, "Water," ended in a gigantic flood that lasted for 52 years. Only one man and one woman survived, sheltered in a huge cypress, but they were changed into dogs by Tezcatlipoca, a God whose orders they had disobeyed.

  37. What we think: Well, right now, according to the Aztecs, we are living in the period of the fifth sun. We don`t know what will happen next, or how we will transition into the period of the sixth sun, but we think it will be peaceful. We think that our country is very interesting because there is a lot of history about towns, peolple, customs, traditions. Historically, we consider it one of the most important countries in the world.

  38. Aztec legend: the earth goddes The bright and dark aspects of the creator are represented by two gods: Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipocal. The earth herself is the nourisher of life; but she is also the burial ground of the dead. One purpose of this myth is to validate the aztec custom of sacrificing live human hearts.

  39. These two gods brought the earth goddess Tlalteuctli down to earth from the sky. All her body was filled with eyes and mouths biting ferociously, saying to each other “we must make the earth”, so they changed into two great serpents, one of whom seized the goddess from the right hand down to the left foot, the other from the left hand down to the right foot. They tightened their grip around her and split her in two. Her upper half became the earth, and her lower half went to the sky. The gods in the sky didn`t like her upper half being in the sky, so they took her down to earth.

  40. They changed her hair into trees They changed her skin into flowers and grass They changed her eyes into wells and fountains They changed her mouth into rivers and caves They changed her nose into valleys and mountains

  41. The Aztecs said that at night, this goddess still wails, thirsting for human hearts. For this reason, the Aztecs performed sacrifices… they would take human hearts and feed them to her, as to keep her silent and keep her (and in turn the earth) fertile.

  42. The rag-picker and the priest Near the temple of Huitzilopochtli, an Aztek rag-picker discovered a painted book that told of a magical box hidden inside the ninety-third step of the pyramid. The rag-picker agreed to split the treasure with the priest of the temple, and counted the stairs of the pyramid until they got to the 93rd one. There, they found the magical box, hidden away. It was filled with magical items. The priest said: “These are sacred things. You don`t know how to use any of them, so they`re no use to you”.

  43. So the priest gave the rag-picker 300 pieces of gold and kept the rest of the treasure for himself. As the priest counted the gold coins, the rag-picker hit him on the back of the head with a magic wand and killed him. He threw the priest`s body into the lake and started to learn how to use the magical artifacts. • It was too hard, though. The rag-picker didn`t understand any of it, so he packed the artifacts back into the box, and threw it in the lake.

  44. Theend • In this moment, the priest was reborn. He jumped out of the lake and caught the box in his hands. The priest took out the magic wand from the box and killed the rag-picker with it. From then on, the priest carried the sacred items with him always, so nobody else could get hurt. What is the moral of this story? The Aztecs were not greedy people. They believed in sharing, and worked for each other, not against each other. This is a lesson we should all learn…
