    1. Thank you for trying on the pronunciations. So many people just pronounce them according to their own dialects and it’s very refreshing and satisfying to hear someone actual care enough to try. Coming from someone who speaks a variation of the Mexica language it is very gratifying to know people care enough to try.

    2. Top10Archive Im laughing my ass off on how good the pronunciations are unbelievably great, give him more money he deserves it LOL


    Perhaps everything could have happened in another way, but the book tells that there are old people who tell it this way; “The myths tell us that first appeared the Sun, the Moon and an enormous number of stars”, soon the earth was born, on the blue sky and a few white and fluffy clouds, and that these gave water to the earth, in the earth only existed seas lakes and rivers in them a great variety of fish and on these they flew countless birds, in the forests they inhabited animals of different species, the myth narrates that the Gods wondered that something was lacking in the earth something that gave culture to the lands and the one that offered them sacrifices and suffering to the Gods.

    Well, that is how the history of man’s creation began, and the values ​​that were left to us, Quetzalcoatl, “God the creator of man,” set out for the kingdom of the hereafter to ask the bones of life for the God of death Mictlantecuhtli. When he arrived in front of him, he asked for the bones of life, he offered that the land had to be inhabited so that someone would suffer and thank them for giving them life.

    Mictlantecuhtli thought it and agreed he only asked him to blow on his snail and to dance three times around his throne Quetzalcoatl obeyed, but the God of death prepared a trap to strip him of the bones of life, Quetzalcoatl found to the Goddess Quilaztlí, with the help of this Goddess, she crushed the bones to a fine powder, poured it into a fountain, added a few drops of blood, and obtained a life-giving mass of the bones, and thus molded human beings.

    Therefore, so began the myth of life and the creation of man, this myth reveals to us that man is governed by a God to thank him for his creation, The creation of man led the Gods to use them for the purpose of sacrifice. I continue the lives of humans until they revived and took their place on earth.
    “And in spite of all the desire of Mictlantecuhtli is fulfilled and Quetzalcóatl goes to the world of the dead to take away the bones of the life”. And so when the man dies his body is buried and the bones of life return with their master to the realm of the dead.

  2. The main mythological god of Mexico, is Quetzalcoatl.
    Just as the Greeks have Zeus, the Nordics to Odin, the Egyptians to Amon-Ra.
    We Mexicans have Quetzalcoatl.
    According to Aztec mythology is the creator god, creator of man, god of life, light, wisdom, fertility and knowledge, pattern of the day and the winds, the ruler of the West.
