The Aztecs were a colony and they had a very rough start . They became one of the main civilizations that did amazing things and some will see their rituals brutal or inhumane but that was their culture . They had a surplus and they built their homes and city in the swamp . The Aztecs did not live in their pyramids in act they did rituals on top of them . Mayans were a colony that were still uncovering . Their civilization fell down with a BOOM ! Their people are still alive through their descendants .They were not conquered by the Spanish . The Incas were conquered and they did things like living in the mountains and they lined almost everything in gold . Sadly they were conquered by the Spanish also .
Hernando Cortes conquered the Aztecs with Power and strategy. He than made a colony in which priests and people came to convert the Native Americans into their religion. Hierarchy has always been used from the start of the first colonies . So were not surprised that hierarchy was used to take down the Aztecs . Hernando Cortes was a greedy man who wanted nothing but power and wealth . Even though he may have done some bad things like using La malinche but he changed the history of Mexico . I don't know what would have happened if he did not conquer the Aztecs . The country could have been way more advanced since they had things back then that were just making now. They could have a way better surplus of things we could not have know about . m
Since this is my perspective box i would like to say some things. I think what Hernan Cortes thought he was doing something reasonable . When we think about what he did it seems messed up what he did . But he played it super smart . He knew that he would have to set fire to keep those men from leaving . He also knew that he would have to see all the other neighboring people to see what they thought of the Aztecs . Since they asked for him to take the Aztecs down he knew that he had a way and passage to taking them down . He was a smart guy that did a horrible thing ( In my opinion) . But then again the question I have is what would the world be like if the Aztecs and the Incas and the Mayans were still alive ?
