    In the years following the Conquest, some
    Catholic priests realized that their efforts of
    conversion were destroying much of the
    native people's history, lore and traditions.
    These priests provided converts with the
    means to document Aztec culture before it
    disappeared altogether.
    The page from the Codex Mendosa,
    showing items of tribute made to the ruler of
    Tenochtitlan, has costumes used in pre-
    Columbian times. The Muerte in the
    foreground, participating in the festival of the
    Holy Cross, in Cerro Azul, Acatlan,

    pocos sacerdotes Católicos, dándose cuenta
    de que sus esfuerzos de conversión estaban
    destruyendo demasiado de la historia, saber
    popular y tradiciones del pueblo nativo, les

    Código Mendoza, uno de los documentos
    producidos por convertidos, que se dice
    muestra elementos de tributo dados al
    Emperador de Tenochtitlan, sugiere que una
    continuidad de las clases ha sobrevivido a los
    siglos si son vistos con esta Muerte, de una
    fotografía por George O. Jackson Jr.,
    participando en el festival de la Santa Cruz en
    Cerro Azul, Acatlan, Guerrero.
