IN AZTLAN, THE AZTECS HAD BEEN RULED BY A POWERFUL ELITE GROUP OF GODS CALLED " AZTECA CHICOMOZTOCA"; THE SUPREME LEADER WAS "HUITZILOPOCHTLIM, "BUT HE EVENTUALLY GREW TIRED OF HIS HUMAN SUBJECTS AND TOLD THEM TO LEAVE WITH HIS SISTER. AND SO IT WAS THAT WHEN THE AZTECS TRAVELED TOWARDS THE SOUTH FROM THEIR HOMELAND OF AZTLAN, UNSURE WHERE THEY WOULD BUILD THEIR CITY, A WOMAN TRAVELED AMONG THEM CALLED "MALINALXOCHITL".

SHE WAS SAID TO BE VERY BEAUTIFUL...BOTH IN FORM AND MANNER BUT THERE WAS AN EVIL SIDE TO HER. SHE COULD DRIVE MEN MAD, SHAKE A RIVER FROM ITS COURSE, OR STRIKE HER ENEMIES DEAD JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM. OR SOMETIMES SHE WOULD TWIST A SOMEONE'S VISION SO THAT THE PERSON THOUGHT THEY WERE SEEING A HUGE BEAST OR SOME HORRIBLE MONSTER. FOR A TIME SHE RULED THEM ON THEIR WANDERINGS, HER FLESH AND BLOOD GUIDANCE COMPLEMENTING UNSEEN "HUITZILOPOCHTLIS "DIRECTIONS IN DREAMS AND HER MAGIC A FORMIDABLE FORCE ADDED TO HIS STRENGTH.

SOMETIMES, DURING THE DARKNESS, WHEN THE PEOPLE WERE ASLEEP, SHE WOULD TAKE A MAN OUTSIDE OF THE CAMP AND TOSS HIM IN FRONT OF A POISONOUS SNAKE. AND BECAUSE SHE WAS A WITCH, SHE COULD TRANSFORM HERSELF INTO ANY BIRD OR ANIMAL SHE WISHED. WITH ALL THESE DANGEROUS POWERS, SHE WANTED TO BE TREATED LIKE A GODDESS, AND NOTHING LESS WOULD DO. THE AZTECS ALLOWED HER TO LIVE AMONG THEM BECAUSE SHE WAS THE SISTER OF THE GOD OF WAR, H"UITZILOPOCHTLI", BUT EVENTUALLY, THE PRIESTS COMPLAINED. THE AZTECS HAD GROWN TO RESENT THEIR FEMALE RULER..."

"..."MY SISTER IS A GRAVE THREAT TO YOU. YOU SHOULD END ALL RELATIONSHIPS WITH HER AND HER WITCHCRAFT. TOMORROW NIGHT, WHEN SLEEP FIRST COMES TO HER, YOU SHOULD MOVE QUICKLY AND SILENTLY, LEAVING HERBEHIND. MY DESTINY IS TO GOVERN NOT BY WITCHCRAFT BUT BY THE STRENGTH OF THE ARROW AND THE SHIELD, OF THE CHEST AND SHOULDERS."

"MY COMMANDS WILL BE OBEYED IN ALL THE LANDS AND I WILL GUARD OVER YOU AND PROTECT THE PEOPLE SO THEY LIVE WELL, SO THE MEXICAN NATION FLOWERS ITS NAME RISING TO THE HEAVENS. OUR CONQUEST WILL BRING TO US JADE, GOLD AND FEATHERS OF ALL COLORS WHICH WILL BE USED TO DECORATE MY TEMPLE. IT WILL ALSO BRING US CORN AND CHOCOLATE OF DIFFERENT TYPES, AND COTTON OF DIFFERENT COLORS. I WILL HAVE EVERYTHING.

"HUITZILOPOCHTLI" ORDERED THE PEOPLE TO LEAVE, AND HE PUT HIS SISTER TO SLEEP. ACCORDING TO AZTEC, MYTH, THE CAPITAL CITY OF "TENOCHTITLAN" WAS FOUNDED ON THE BURIED HEART OF "COPIL, MALINALXOCHITL'S "SON. COPIL," KILLED BY THE MEXICANS ON ORDERS FROM "HUITZILOPOCHTLI", WAS SYMBOLICALLY, IF NOT LITERALLY, THE FIRST VICTIM OF AZTEC HUMAN SACRIFICE; HIS HEART WAS THROWN INTO THE MIDDLE OF LAKE TEXCOCO.
