Today's Aztecs live in Mexico ....  as Mexicans.  The people of Mexico, just like the people of most other countries in the world, are descendents of their history.  People mix, people marry, peoples change over the years. It's nearly 500 years since Cortes overthrew Tenochtitlan but you can still find Aztecs in every walk of life ... doing the same kind of thing ... but not the sacrifice bit!! In 1982 an estimated 1,000,000 people were of Aztec descent.

Bargains Weaving
In the Markets Weaving in the traditional way
I bet it's noisy I grew it myself
Turkeys on the Chinampa? Selling, not bartering, the corn.
We serenade you We play soccer too!
At the festival And smiling ......
