one of the many Original Inhabitants (so-called Indians) who originated
on this continent we call Ixachilan (see "Native American Oral Traditions
and Archaeological Myths"). We are descendants of the ancient Mesoamerican
civilizations that covered an area from Aztlan (so-called U.S. Southwest)
to the area called Costa Rica in Central America. "Mexican" is what
the English called us. "Mexicano" (Meh-hee-kano) is what the Spaniard
Europeans called us. Mexica (Meh-shee-kah) is what we call ourselves.
Ninety-nine percent of our history as a people happened before the Europeans
invaded our land, but sadly that is not the part of our history that
has been taught to us. That hidden pre-European history, and the cultural
castration effect of the European Invasion, is what www.mexicauprising.net
is based upon. After 512 years of colonization, we must rise up against
the illegal settler population whom continue to enslave us socially,
economically, politically and spiritually. It is written in our ancient
prophecy called Tzitzimimee; we will not be defeated.
Latin America is named after the White people of Latin descent who
stole our land and claimed it as their own. The Europeans brand everything
they "own" with their name, it is no different with our land. Some may
believe that the term Latino is a unifying factor for the people living
in Latin America and it is; for the whites living on our land not us.
Latinos are white people from Southern Europe living in "Latin America."
They are the people of Latin (white Roman) descent. Latin is a white
language that was spoken by the Romans. When the Roman empire fell,
the Romans eventually forgot Latin because it was no longer taught in
their schools. English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French all
developed from Latin as dialects then eventually became languages. The
people who speak these languages are therefore the descendants of the
Latinos. Latino is simply Spanish for people of Latin descent; the Europeans.
Hispanics are white people from Spain. The Romans called the Spaniards
"Hispanos" which means people of Hispania (Spain).
When the Spaniards invaded our people, they could not pronounce our
name (Mexica, pronounced meh - shee - kah) because there is not a sound
in the Spanish language for "sh". The Spaniards then put an "x" in the
place of the "sh" to signify an unknown sound. Mexicano or Mexican therefore
are mispronunciations of our true name.
We , the Mexica people are one of the original inhabitants of this
Our original home is Aztlan. Aztlan is located in the four corners
region (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona) along the 4 great rivers:
(What we call the Nahui Atl) the Colorado river (the river begins and
ends in Arizona and Colorado, therefore to us it was considered 2 seperate
rivers), the Green river, and the San Juan river
We migrated to Mexico/Anahuac around 1016 A.D. because of the severe
droughts of the time.
Before we left Aztlan we were called "Azteca". But the Azteca broke
up into 8 tribes, the Mexica being the last to leave south.
Most everyone today uses the term "Aztec" in reference to the Mexica,
which is absurd. The Azteca no longer existed after 1016 A.D. By then
we had all broken up and changed our names to Hopi, Alcohua, Mexica
Does this mean we are "INDIANS"? NO! THE INDIAN PEOPLE LIVE IN INDIA.
If you are tempted to use the word, substitute it for an accurate one
like Indigenous or Native. If you want to go even further, use the term:
Ixachilankah (Nahuatl for natives of this continent which we call Ixachilan)
or Anahuaka (natives of Anahuak). It is very important that this term
not be used by our people.
Spanish is NOT our "Mother Tongue." Spanish is a foreign language
from Europe. We speak it only because we remain under colonial rule.
Nahuatl is our true language, the language of the Mexica.
It is very important that we learn Nahuatl because as long as we speak
white languages, we will think like white people. Europeans are the
only people in the world to develop a linear world-view; everyone else
has a circular world-view. In the linear world-view, the past is irrelevant
because the ultimate goal is to get to heaven. Everything that occurs
in the past is therefore useless because when you ask for forgiveness,
you acquire a clean slate. This is why you hear whites always saying
"forget about the past" or "stop living in the past." It is no suprise
that the Europeans are the only people in the world to develop retirement
homes (because they dont realize their parents nurtured them throughout
their lives and must then be nurtured in their old age; instead they
put them in these homes to rot) and industralization (which is an economic
system that systematically destroys the Earth). This is an illogical
way of viewing the world because any normal person can see that the
past, present and future are all related. We must acquire our original
circular world-view in order to understand the events that happened
in the past which still effect us in the present and how it will continue
to effect us in the future.
Some people claim that we are the "cosmic race" a mixture of whites
and "indians". They say how can you fight against something that is
in your veins? Do you think that if Hitler raped a jewish woman the
resulting child would love his father and proclaim to be a German??
I think not. By acknowledging the Spanish blood that was raped into
you as valid, you are justifying the mass rape of our foremothers.
The belief that "all" Mexica are half Spanish is absurd.
From the time period spanning 1519 to 1810, only 80,000 Spaniards ever
came to Mexico. Even if we assumed every one of these Spaniards raped
an indigenous woman, we would still be well over 95% indigenous (based
on the estimated indigenous population after diseases took their toll
of 1 million, regarded by many scholars as a highly deflated number).
North and South America in Nahuatl are called Ixachilan and are considered
to be one mass of land united by the Eagle and Condor not two seperate
continents. Anahuak is the section of Ixachilan which includes Aztlan,
Mexiko, Amalpan (Belize), Kuauhtemallan (Guatemala), Atenantitech (Honduras),
Kuzkatlan (El Salvador), and Nikananawak (Nicaragua). "Central America"
was created when Spain divided up our land and handed it out to former
Spanish soldiers and their descendants still own these countries to
this day. Just as "Mexicanos" is a false term for natives of Mexico,
"Salvadorenos" is a false term for the natives of Kuzkatlan. The correct
term for natives of El Salvador therefore is Kuzkateca.
The Spanish names we Mexicas have now are slave names which were given to
our ancestors by the Spaniards. During our enslavement on the encomiendas,
we were named after our Spanish slave masters to signify that we were
their property. When the encomienda system came to end, the Spanish
priests began forcefully converting us and giving us Christian slave
names. That is why many of our people are named after saints such as
Maria, Juan, Jose, Rosa etc..
In our language "Mexica" comes from Mexihtli-Huitzilpochtli a warrior
priest who led us from Aztlan to Mexico-Tenochtitlan and who represents
the sun. The word therefore means, "People of Mexihtli/the Sun". Mexica
is plural. Mexicatl is the singular form. Therefore; "I am Mexicatl
(Ni Mexicatl)" & "We are Mexica (Tehuan Mexica)".
Catholicism was imposed upon us Mexica by the Hispanic invaders. We have
our own creator whom we call Ometeotl which means "dual cosmic energy."
Ometeotl is a culmination of all the energy in the universe and is represented
by the sacred dualities of these energies - water/fire, life/death,
male/female, day/night, good/bad. We have no need for foreign religions
created by foreign cultures; we have our own.
All Mexica at the age of 5 were kidnapped and systematically mind raped.
This "education" has succeeded in brainwashing all of us into being
european clones. Most of us speak English and Spanish; two European
languages and are Christians; a white religion. It is time to de-colonize
our minds and think as individuals. Don't let the wasicu control your
destiny, learn your true history and culture!

As a director and his crew shoot a controversial
film about Christopher Columbus in Cochabamba, Bolivia, local people
rise up against plans to privatize the water supply. While filming,
it becomes apparent that the events that occured during the American
Holocaust were so horrendous and inhumane that they are often too
difficult to imagine.The film masterfully
illustrates the fact that 519 years later, indigenous people still
endure oppression at the hands of the european invaders proving that

"If Brown (vs. Board
of Education) was just about letting Black people into a White
school, well we don’t care about that anymore. We don’t
necessarily want to go to White schools. What we want to do is
teach ourselves, teach our children the way we have of teaching.
We don’t want to drink from a White water fountain...We
don’t need a White water fountain. So the whole issue of
segregation and the whole issue of the Civil Rights Movement is
all within the box of White culture and White supremacy. We should
not still be fighting for what they have. We are not interested
in what they have because we have so much more and because the
world is so much larger. And ultimately the White way, the American
way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead
to our own destruction. And so it isn’t about an argument
of joining neo liberalism, it’s about us being able, as
human beings, to surpass the barrier."
