Hello! my name is Nancy, today I am going to be telling you a story about the Mesoamerican culture. Our story begins in the wilderness. Come on let's go!
As you can see behind me there are two boys playing Pok-A-Tok. This is a Mesoamerican game that is played by the Incas, Mayan's, and the Aztecs.
The Olmec culture thrived along Mexico's Gulf coast from roughly 1200 to 400 B.C. Best known today for their carved colossal heads.
The Olmecs were an important early Mesoamerican civilization which had much influence on later cultures such as the Aztecs and the Maya.
The Aztec's first ruler Acamapichtli oversaw the construction of the Aztec Empire in the 1300s.
It's getting pretty late so I have my last fact for you. The Inca Empire, also known as the Inka Empire or Incan Empire, was the largest empire in pre- Columbian America. The administrative, political, and military center of the empire was located in Cusco in modern-day Peru.
