Rhapsody of the Mexica: Tenochtitlan, The Original Lake Texcoco Nahua Altepetl

Post  Yakima Canutt on Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:00 pm

A very odd place for a capital city; on a marsh in a lake bottom ringed by mountains, and prone to earthquakes and some of the worst smog on this planet.

Tenochtitlan, or "All Among the Prickly Pears- Rocks," was the home of the immigrant Mexica, those Aztecnotronic zooters who founded the city in AD 1325 on an swampy island smacky dabble in the pinche middle of Lake Texcoco, in the Basin of Fuerte Mexico. The Mexica were one of Seven Chichimeca Champion Guilds who came to Tenochtitlan from their fabled, mucho mucho mas lindo city of origin, Aztlan (Land of the Pinche Fuckin Heron). They came because of an omen: the Chichimec god Huitzilopochtli, who took the form of an eagle, was seen perched on a cactus eating a snake. El Presidente of the Mexica interpreted this as a sign to move their population to an unpleasant, miry, buggy, mess; and eventually their military prowess and political abilities turned that mess into the central agency of conquest, the Mexica snake swallowing most of Mesoamerica, aqui arriba etc.

Eh see in northern Mexigo and southwestern USA you have your Mysterious Assorted People known As EL PUEBLO, which long predates Aztec Gloria. The Pueblo were good builders, but shoddy record-keepers who didnae give a wee-wolly frack about posterity... ... so there are many mas unknown unknowns. borrachito azul mañana.

Están totalmente equivocado cuando ellos hablan de que aquí en Monterrey ya no se forjan estrellas, yo no puedo desmeritar ni desprestigiar los luchadores de Nuevo Laredo, el roster con el que cuenta Promociones Cantú, por que de ahí han salido grandes elementos como Hombre Sin Miedo, Laredo Kid, Sobredosis, Río Bravo, Tito Santana, Tigre Cota, Black Mamba, Escorpión Negro, que hoy ya están en empresas grandes como AAA, CMLL, Lucha Pop, etcétera; pero, el decir que Monterrey ya no forja grandes es mentira, por que mira donde esta el Hijo del Ninja, Símbolo, Big Neurosis, Rico Rodríguez, Dralion y toda la sangre nueva que Llaves y Candados se ha dedicado a impulsar. Ellos se perdieron en sus declaraciones y se han metido en temas delicados, se que la afición asistirá este domingo a ver la guerra de empresas y lo único que les puedo decir es que haremos que la Coliseo les pese y se vayan con la derrota, la ocasión pasada le ganaron a la Nueva Potencia Ruda a la mala; pero, con nosotros eso no va.

The Dateline File
Tuesday
By Nacho Jones

Mexican citizen recently captured in Contra Costa County was deported Tuesday to his native country in connection with the killing of a man who disappeared after he offered to repay a debt with a large collection of Star Wars action figures, authorities said.

Pablo Christian Larumbe Rojas, 34, was turned over to the Mexican Attorney General’s Office. Authorities in Mexico had been seeking him on a warrant accusing him of murder and kidnapping in connection with the September 2010 disappearance of Carlos Palomares Maldonado, who “purportedly owed the suspect’s criminal confederates roughly $3,000,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said in a statement.

Palomares offered to settle the debt by “trading his extensive collection of Star Wars action figures, which were worth more than the amount he owed,” authorities said.

The victim reportedly went to the suspect’s home but never returned. Mexican authorities later detained several individuals who were in possession of the victim’s body — and who then implicated the suspect, authorities said.

Palomares had been working at an Antioch hotel under an assumed name, authorities said. He was arrested in February by federal immigration agents and the U.S. Marshals Service.

According to U.S. Department of Homeland Security databases, the suspect originally entered the United States in September 2011 on a visitor’s visa, which authorized him to remain in the country for no more than six months.

“The so-called ‘force’ was definitely not with Rojas during his capture and subsequent removal to Mexico,” said Timothy Aitken, field office director for the immigration agency’s enforcement and removal operations in San Francisco.

The coat of arms recalls the founding of Mexico City, then called Tenochtitlan. The legend of Tenochtitlan as shown in the original Mexica codices, paintings, and post-Cortesian codices do not include a snake. While the Fejérváry-Mayer codex depicts an eagle attacking a snake, other Mexica illustrations, such as the Codex Mendoza, show only an eagle; in the text of the Ramírez Codex, however, Huitzilopochtli asked the Tenochtitlan people to look for an eagle devouring a snake, perched on an prickly pear cactus. In the text by Chimalpahin Cuauhtlehuanitzin, the eagle is devouring something, but it is not mentioned what it is. Still other versions show the eagle clutching the Aztec symbol of war, the Atl-Tlachinolli glyph, or "burning water."

Moreover, the original meanings of the symbols were different in numerous aspects. The eagle was a representation of the sun god Huitzilopochtli, who was very important, as the Mexicas referred to themselves as the "People of the Sun." The cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica), full of its fruits, called "nochtli" in Nahuatl, represent the island of Tenochtitlan. To the Mexicas, the snake represented wisdom, and it had strong connotations with the god Quetzalcoatl. The story of the snake was derived from an incorrect translation of the Crónica mexicáyotl by Fernando Alvarado Tezozómoc. In the story, the Nahuatl text ihuan cohuatl izomocayan, "the snake hisses", was mistranslated as "the snake is torn". Based on this, Father Diego Durán reinterpreted the legend, so that the eagle represents all that is good and right, while the snake represents evil and sin. Despite its inaccuracy, the new legend was adopted because it conformed with European heraldic tradition. To the Europeans it would represent the struggle between good and evil. Although this interpretation does not conform to pre-Columbian traditions, it was an element that could be used by the first missionaries for the purposes of evangelism and the conversion of the native peoples.
