There are many different indigenous tribes in the New World that were built on a foundation of survival. These tribes were not given an easy life and they were forced to live off the land and look out for each other. One such tribe was the Aztec tribe, and in today's article, we're going to talk about this community, its history, and the time period in which it was most dangerous.
The History of the Aztecs
The Aztecs were a nomadic tribe that originated in the northwestern Mexico region. They were a part of a larger group of Native Americans known as the Nahuatl-speaking people. The Aztecs migrated to the Valley of Mexico in the late 13th century. They settled on an island in the lake where they founded their capital, Tenochtitlan. The Aztecs built a highly organized and powerful empire. At its height, the Aztec empire included more than 80,000 people. The Aztecs were known for their warlike culture and for their practice of human sacrifice.
