The aging booth app was all fun and games until I used it on my 60yo dad and it showed me a skeleton. 

I eat a lot of sweets (shocker I know) and I don’t like to litter so when there is no trashcan around I stuff the wrappers into my pockets to dispose of later.

But I often forget to throw them away so come laundry day, when taking my clothes out the dryer all my clothes have a faint smell of chocolates to them.

I don’t feel like this is a bad thing.

We all know the Aztecs by that name, but it was not actually a name that they ever called themselves. The Westerners who came up with the name ‘Aztecs’ likely took it from one of the original places that the Aztecs lived around the twelve century, called Aztlan, which was in the Northern part of Mexico. However, the Aztecs themselves actually referred to themselves as Mexica, which is actually where the name for the country of Mexico originally came from.
Mexica (Meh-shee-kah) is the original Nahuatl (the so-called Aztec language) way of pronouncing Mexican, Mexicano, Chicano and Chicana. The Mexica was the last of our great Anahuac civilizations (1325 to 1521). Mexica is the only one of our cultures and civilizations which has enough surviving material from which we can reconstruct our Anahuac nation. The Mexica were victims of an ethnocide that left no one today who can authentically call themselves Mexica, much like in Italy there is no one who can authentically call themselves Roman. Therefore, the rest of us who have lost all of our civilization identity and culture or tribal identity and culture, and even those of us who have a civilization or tribal identity, can and should embrace Mexica identity as a collective identity for all of us that we use in order to reconstruct our Anahuac nation and as a means of Liberation. Mexica is our point of unity and our means of reconstructing all of our nation.
Nican Tlaca is our Nahuatl (Mexica) language way of saying “We the people here”, in reference to all of us who are Indigenous to Cemanahuac (what Europeans call “the Western Hemisphere”) and more specific to Anahuac which is the northern part of Cemanahuac (which is called “North America”). Nican Tlaca refers to all of the people of our race in the “Western Hemisphere”. We are not Indians or indios because those are the people of a nation called India!

This really rubs me the wrong way, and I won’t get into a long explanation of why b/c I have talked about why this rubs me the wrong way, but a shortened version:
 No the Mexica aren’t dead, their descendants (the Nahua people)  are still alive and well. and many can still speak their language, so stop referring to them in the past tense. Also, it is important that indigenous people have solidarity, but not at the cost of sacrificing and disregarding our own unique identities, traditions and histories, that is not solidarity.


Also I would like to point out that not all of Mexico was MexicaThere were other tribes such as Acatec, Amuzgo, Chatino, Chiapaneca, Chichimeca, Chicomuceltec, Chinanteco, Chocho, Ch’ol, Chuj, Cochimi, Cocopa, Cora, Cuicateco, Guarijio, Huasteco, Huave, Huichol Indian, Ixcateco, Jacalteco, Kickapoo, Kiliwa, Kumiai, Lacandon, Mam, Matlatzinca, Mazahua, Mazatec, Mixe, Mixtec, Mocho, Nahuatl/Mexica, Oaxaca Chontal, Opata, Otomi, Paipai, Pame, Pima Bajo, Popoloca, Popoluca, Purepecha, Seri, Tabasco Chontal, Tacaneco, Tarahumara, Tectiteco, Tepehua, Tepehuan, Tlahuica, Tlapanec, Tojolabal, Toltec, Totonac, Trique, Tubar, Tzeltal, Tzotzil, Yaqui, Yucatec Maya, ZapotecDon’t let them generalize us, We were the first melting pot of rich culture
