Mexica

Location

His name was Eztli which means blood

in Nahuatl, once you name your child

You

can never go back. People think that

the Nahuatl culture is done because the

Europeans and Spaniards conquered us

and changed our name from Mexica to

Aztec, now people think to

put us is a box and call us

Spanish or Latinos or Mexicans

 

We are not

Spanish

Latino

or Mexicans

we are Mexicas from indigenous

people all over Mexico

but

the fight is not done

all over in the Americas

people are naming their sons and

daughters names like Eztli,

Xochilt, Olin, and Coyotl.

They are all proud of their

culture that survived throughout

the ages despite ethnocide and

genocide that others have inflicted

on us

French

Spaniards

Portuguese

 

They have all tried to bring us down

we have to fight

and reject what society

throws at us

 

Columbus Day is a day that is

suppose to celebrate the fact

that Columbus discovered

America

instead it shows us how

one person was capable of

so much

destruction and mayhem

destroying cultures and

people, being

derogatory and

racist

 

This is not the whole truth

This is only part of the unfinished

Tale.
