Storyboard Text

  • The Aztecs went from Aztlan to the Valley of Mexico in the 1200's.
  • Because of the other groups considering them barbarians, they served as mercenaries for other city-states.
  • The Aztecs were forced to relocate to different regions in the Valley of Mexico for the next six decades.
  • Their priests told them they would find a sign from the gods, an eagle eating a serpent on a cactus, that would tell they will build. They found the eagle and decided to settle on an island in Lake Texcoco.
  • The Aztecs founded their capital city, Tenochtitlan on an island in the Valley of Mexico in 1345.
  • They built chinampas, causeways, and canals, which gave a path to other city-states.
