The mission of the H-Nahuatl network is to provide a simple medium where scholars interested in studying the Nahua or Nahuatl (Aztecs or Aztec language) can go to be in communication with others. The network will accept postings in English, Spanish, Nahuatl, and French. Historically the network has addressed issues relevant to understanding nuances of Nahuatl, the grammar and structure of the language. It also serves as a place where the general public can inquire about specific issues of the Nahua. Lastly, it provides a forum wherein scholars can announce their research plans and seek assistance from others in the field.

Death of Miguel Leon-Portilla

It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my friend and mentor, Dr. Miguel Leon-Portilla.  From our first meeting in 1974 he was nothing if not kind and generous in every way.  He was a noble successor to his teacher and mentor, Angel Maria Garibay.  Together they forged the world of Nahuatl Studies.

 

I will miss him.
