Storyboard Text

  • The Aztec Empire had around 5 million citizens. 
  • A long time ago, their was a civilization called the Aztecs. 
  • They lived in Modern day Mexico, by the blue dot. 
  • They believed that death is just the beginning of a person's existence. 
  • And they did lots of human sacrifices. 
  • Then, in 1519, Spanish ships landed in the Aztec Empire. 
  • They wanted to take over the land, and united the Aztec enemies against them in war. 
  • The new Spanish Empire would be ruled by Hernan Cortes. 
  • After lots of fighting, the Aztecs surrendered. Nearly 200,000 people had died, many from smallpox. 
  • After the Spanish took over, they forced the Aztecs to change their language to Spanish, and their religion to Catholicism, which 80% of Mexicans still practice today. 
  • They also tore down many temples to build Spanish style villages. 
  • While the cu;ture of mexico is vastly different today, most Mexicans still beluve that death is just the beginning of a persons existence, and they celebrate this on Dia de los Muertos.
