In this cartoon we´ll talk about what we learnt about the Mexican ancient civilizations.
First populated more than 13,000 years ago,the territory had complex indigenous civilizations
The diet of ancient central and southern Mexico was varied, including domesticated corn, such as pumpkin and butternut squash, common beans etc
Mesoamericans believed every element of the cosmos, the earth, the sun,everything that forms part of nature such as animals, plants, water and mountains all represented a manifestation of the supernatural, In most cases gods and goddesses
Mesoamerica is the only place in the Americas where indigenous writing systems were invented. While the types of writing systems in Mesoamerica range from minimalist "picture-writing" to complex logophonetic systems capable of recording speech and literature
The Olmecs were the first Mesoamerican culture to produce an identifiable artistic and cultural style, and may also have been the society that invented writing in Mesoamerica.
