Storyboard Text

  • Hey, has it ever occurred to you how neat our buildings are here in Mexico?
  • And have you realized that all of these “neat buildings" were made from the remnants of a dead civilization
  • WHAT?!
  • In this country, there used to be a civilization of people called the Aztecs. Their way of life was much different than ours and the Spanish Conquest, led by Hernan Cortes, forced them to change.
  • What did the Spanish do?
  • Well, first, to stop the Aztecs from sacrificing their own to the gods they believed in for religion, the Spanish had to convert the Aztecs to Christianity.
  • How many people lived in this...Aztec land?
  • This city was named Tenochtitlan when the Aztecs lived here, and about 15 million people lived here at the time.
  • Did the Spanish kill all 15 million?
  • No, no, no! Only 200,000 Aztecs died directly form the Spanish Conquest. All of them eventually passed due to disease brought by the Spanish.
  • I really shouldn't have added that last part.
