The Aztecs at Independence

Nahua Culture Makers in Central Mexico, 1799–1832

The University of Arizona Press

This ethnohistory uses colonial-era native-language texts written by Nahuas to construct history from the indigenous point of view. The book offers the first internal ethnographic view of central Mexican indigenous communities in the critical time of independence, when modern Mexican Spanish developed its unique character, founded on indigenous concepts of space, time, and grammar. The Aztecs at Independence opens a window into the cultural life of writers, leaders, and worshippers—Nahua women and men in the midst of creating a vibrant community.
