The broken spears : the Aztec account of the conquest of Mexico by Miguel León Portilla( Book )

"For hundreds of years, the history of the conquest of Mexico and the defeat of the Aztecs has been told in the words of the Spanish victors. Miguel León-Portilla has long been at the forefront of expanding that history to include the voices of indigenous peoples. In this new and updated edition of his classic The Broken Spears, León-Portilla has included accounts from native Aztec descendants across the centuries. These texts bear witness to the extraordinary vitality of an oral tradition that preserves the viewpoints of the vanquished instead of the victors. León-Portilla's new Postscript reflects upon the critical importance of these unexpected historical accounts"--P.[4] of cover

in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of 5 documents covers historical and community-level ethnographic information on Nahua villagers living in Tepoztlán and one unidentified municipality in Huasteca. The Nahua are Native Americans who trace their ethnic origin and identity to the Nahuatl-speaking Aztecs. More commonly, the Nahua refer to themselves as Mexicano (derived from the ancient Nahuatl word Mexica). Sandstrom discusses the dynamics of culture and ethnic identity among the Nahua based on his extensive ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 1970-1990. He argues that the Nahua have continued to exhibit linguistic and cultural features that distinguish them from many other ethnic groups of modern Mexico, despite many years of Spanish conquest and a series of government attempts to incorporate them into the dominant Mestizo culture. Other documents provide firsthand accounts of village life and aspects of culture in a Tepoztlán municipality as observed over three research periods spanning 1926-1956. The first was 1926-1917, when anthropologist Redfield conducted research on this community. The second was 1943-1948 when Lewis, together with a team of graduate students and associate researchers, lived in Tepoztlán for about a year to restudy the community. The last research period was 1956 when Lewis revisited the community to supplement his previous study by examining major changes that occurred since the first fieldwork. Together, these four documents provide a comprehensive account of culture and society among contemporary Aztec Indian villagers
