Why Aztec writing contests are a huge success for the Aztec community

Written by Aztec writers are one of the most celebrated aspects of the Aztecs. 

They’re a way to celebrate a culture’s heritage, and their writing is considered one of its greatest achievements. 

The Azteca culture dates back to the Pre-Columbian era, and they were a major trading nation that thrived in the middle of the Amazon, as well as along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. 

During the Spanish Conquest of the New World in the 15th century, the Aztcs were taken captive by the Spanish. 

Aztec writers had been captured by the Spaniards, and by the end of the 1500s, they were forced to convert to Catholicism. 

At the end, they would be taken to the city of Tenochtitlan in the south-eastern state of Guerrero, where they would spend a year in confinement, where Aztec writer and scholar, Francisco de Guzman de Quiroga, would be executed. 

As they were going to be sold off, some Aztec leaders, including Quiigay and Quijano, managed to convince the Spanish authorities to let them go, as long as they returned to their original culture. 

After a year’s captivity, they returned home. 

But this wasn’t the only way the Aztesans were sold off. 

According to the AzTEC (Aztec Community and Economic Community of Mexico), Aztec communities were sold at the end. 

In 1818, Mexican authorities bought the Azticans from Quijango and his family. 

While the Aztais were able to return to their ancestral lands, they faced significant hardships and hardships. 

Many Aztec people, especially those who had spent time in the Amazon and had ties to indigenous tribes, would die as a result of disease, disease, starvation, or other circumstances. 

“This is the first time in history that the Aztlán community has had this experience, this loss, and it is the Aztenas’ story,” Aztec novelist and writer Jose Antonio López-Pineda told The New York Times. 

He also added that it’s also the first instance in which the Aztanos themselves have been sold off as a form of compensation. 

Some historians say the Azts were originally given the option to return as a sacrifice to the gods in exchange for being spared the slaughter of their people. 

Others say that the sale of the writing contests came to be because the Aztekans were afraid they would have to return when the Spaniard’s armies arrived in the country. 

So in 1818 in Tenochtaén, the Toluca, Aztec, and Chihuahua communities were all united in celebrating the first written contest. 

Each community had to write three letters to their president, with the winner receiving a monetary reward, and the others receiving their letters as a gift. 

These contests were a big hit, with many Aztec tribes writing the contest entries as they would to commemorate their ancestors. 

A number of them, including the Tolucas and Chicas, won prizes ranging from gold to a diamond ring. 

There were also contests in Mexico City, including in 1906, where Toluca writer Miguel de Peralta, and writer Guzman Lópeza, were both awarded gold stars and the title of a champion, and in 1915, Toluca-Chihuahuan writer Diego Dezso was awarded a silver star. 

It’s important to note that many of the Toluacos and Chicanos were not actually Aztec; they were members of the Chichimas culture, and Aztec culture is not part of Chican culture.

The Toluca community had the largest writing contest in Mexico in terms of participants, and there were also some contests held in Mexico’s coastal states, where people from the Toluma and Chichomayas culture were also represented. 

Among the Toluidas, the Chicanas, and other indigenous cultures who wrote contests were: Chihuatuan
