Storyboard Text

  • Gods create life through sacrificing themselves daily by spilling their own blood. 
  • Wanting to pay the Gods back, the Aztecs build huge temples to worship them.
  • To further pay the God’s back, the Aztecs regularly raid and capture tribespeople from neighboring areas.
  • The captives are sacrificed at the top of the temples by having their hearts removed from their chests.
  • The hearts and blood offerings are cooked - the “essence” of the offering makes it way to the Gods.
  • Refreshed with new life-force from the sacrifices, the Gods can continue to make life.
