Child sacrifice to Huitzilopochtli


Archeologists in the Templo Mayor project have uncovered the remains of a 8 to 10 year old boy at the Temple Mayor. He was sacrificed to the Aztec god of war, Huitzilopochtli, in the late 15th century. He was found with body adornments and Huitzilopochtli symbols. The site is called Offering 176, and it was found under stone slabs near the Temple Mayor.


Translators needed

Several folks have asked me to post the following request:


RAICES needs volunteer translators who speak Meso-American indigenous languages (e.g., zapotec, nahua, ma'am, quich'e, maya, mixe, mixteco-- not Spanish). Do you know anybody? They don't need to be in Texas, or even in the US. They can translate remotely.
