In 1949, a Group of Villagers and Amateur Archaeologists Dug Up what they believed to be the body of the last Aztec emperor, Cuauhtâemoc, in a remote village in the mountains of central Mexico. State and local leaders enthusiastically promoted the remarkable discovery, and nationalist celebrations erupted across the country. The festivities ended when professional archaeologists declared the tomb a forgery, igniting the greatest scandal in the cultural politics of modern Mexico. In this innovative study of nationalism, Paul Gillingham pieces together an intricate puzzle that stretches across five centuries and moves from the forests of southern Mexico, where Cuauhtâemoc was hanged, through the mountains of Guerrero, where he was re-created, to end in thestreets and corridors of power of Mexico City. The analysis captures the complex interactions of everyday people and elites engaged in forging a nation.
This story takes place in the early 16th Century; a time when the world seemed to be expanding at an almost exponential rate. It occurs in South America in a land known as Maya: this is not a tale of what was, but rather, a story of what might have been if I had been in charge of that era. The main character, Cuauhtémoc, is born in a small village in the northwestern part of Maya: the story line follows his life from birth, through birdman-school, where he learns to become a birdman and carry messages. The account unwinds, telling of his adventures, his fights with pirate raiders as well as some of his own people; and by end of the book he is twelve years of age and is sent to the City of Emperors by the Commander of the soldier’s garrison.
Cuauhtémoc Blanco loves to play soccer, and it shows on the field. Blanco has been part of Mexican professional soccer since 1992, and has since become one of the most famous players around. Cuau has been a part of Club América in Mexico, Valladolid in Spain, and the Chicago Fire in the United States, not to mention the Mexican national team. Discover how Blanco became such a great player--and where his skills have taken him. Wherever he goes, Blanco plays his best and earns fans' attention and admiration!
This story takes place in the early 16th Century; a time when the world seemed to be expanding at an almost exponential rate. It occurs in South America in a land known as Maya: this is not a tale of what was, but rather, a story of what might have been if I had been in charge of that era. In the second story, Cuauhtémoc is sent to the City of Emperors. He meets the old Emperor and in the process accidentally gives him a new name. He meets the three Crown Princes; gets into another fight with pirate raiders as well as several of his own people; saves the life of a young girl and very nearly kills the Sun’s High Priest: it was a busy week, even for him. The tale unwinds and in the end, Maya has a new Emperor, when the old Emperor dies . . . or does he? If you want to know more; read the book.

Cloud-boats have been seen on the eastern sea. Strange teotl with silvery skins have come ashore in Totonac province. Some of them have hair the color of maize silk, others the color of fiery embers. Most have hair on their faces, covering their cheeks and chins. Their eyes are difficult to look upon, shining like jade and jewels in various hues. They have brought with them monstrous animals resembling giant deer. Although the beasts are much larger than a man, the teotl impose their wills on them, climbing on their backs and forcing them to run in any direction with blinding speed. The monsters have feet as hard as obsidian. The teotl also have other creatures like giant itzcuintli with jaguar teeth. The teotl bear armor of bright metal on their bodies, covering their legs and arms. The have helmets and shields of the same material. They carry long knives with sharp edges strapped to their sides. They have weapons which project heavy arrows with sufficient force to completely penetrate a man. But their most fearsome weapons are large tubes of tepuzque. These weapons make a noise like thunder and produce clouds of foul-smelling smoke. A round object is emitted from the tube which can destroy a large tree from a great distance. Sacrifices have been made and the omens read. The information has been presented to Moctezuma, Supreme Tlatoani of the Mexica and Emperor of the Triple Alliance. He must decide. Are the teotl representatives of the gods, sent to aid the Aztecs, or are they a threat to the empire?
Describes the life and career of the Mexican soccer star who has won championships and notable awards while playing in his native country, in Spain, and in the United States.

Told with satiric allusions to the policies and tactics used by Mexico's current ruling party, PRI, to consolidate its power, the play unfolds a history of vain rivalry and decadence, intricate political maneuvers, corruption, and unchecked ambition that determined the course of Mexican history for two centuries before the Spanish conquest.
