The Aztec Empire belongs to the group of the Mesoamerican civilizations. From the 13th to the 16th century the Aztecs steadily conquered and ruled over Central-America. We have to note that the word ‘Aztec’ refers to the Nahuatl speaking communities of Mesoamerica. The term was coined by the European conquerors, and was not used by the natives. They called themselves as the Mexica.

Similarities between Inca, Maya and aztecs So first lets take about how the Inca, Aztecs, and Mayan are similar.
The Maya civilisation was one of the most superior indigenous societies of Mesoamerica (a term used to describe Mexico and Central America before the 16th century Spanish conquest). It is believed that the Mayan peoples began to settle in the Yucatan area of what is now known as Mexico between 2600 BC and 1800 BC. Their religion was based on a pantheon of nature gods, including those of the Sun, the Moon, rain, and corn. A priestly class were responsible for an elaborate rotation of rituals and ceremonies. Their beliefs are formed on the idea that virtually everything in the world contains sacredness and life was seen as a recurrent cycle.
Every Olmec site had its own channeled water system, providing plants with water for agricultural purposes (Mann 18-19). Although details are not clear and based on numerous hypotheses, several discoveries and findings have attested that the Olmec have had a significant influence on the political and social development of subsequent civilizations in Mesoamerica. By way of example, the Mayan are known to have inherited various elements of the Olmec´s enriched culture and worldview (McNeill and McNeill 110). Furthermore, similarities between the raised gardening fields in the Andean high plains, called “Altiplanos” and the Olmec´s “distinctive technique for intensifying agricultural output” (McNeill and McNeill 110)have been discovered, which may demonstrate the influence and spread of the Olmec´s intensive wetland agricultural practices. Fundamental grain plants domesticated and cultivated by the Olmec, were maize crops.
Mayan Civilization grew to be one of the most advanced civilizations in the Americas. According to historian Sylvanus Griswold Morley, Maya religion consisted of a diverse and wide range of many supernatural gods and deities. In the beginning of Mayan civilization, religion was exceptionally a simple worship without the need of priests, ceremonials, and no areas of worship. Each family had their own priest and a family temple, which was a hut close to all of the family’s dwellings. Agriculture was then introduced and there was more free time available, therefore god 's became more specific.
Ancient Egyptian deities represent natural and social phenomena, as well as abstract concepts. These gods and goddesses appear in virtually every aspect of ancient Egyptian civilization, and more than 1,500 of them are known by name. Many Egyptian texts mention deities ' names without indicating their character or role, while other texts refer to specific deities without even stating their name, so a complete list of them is difficult to
Priests had to undergo intense training, though, unlike most religions, the Egytians had no "bible" or "scripture". A priests ' duties included performing riutals and cerimonies, healing, interprating dreams, etc. Each temple honored a different god and they believed the gods lived in the temple. Priests performed rituals to honor the gods every day. Elaborate festivals were also held frequently.
The word hieroglyph comes from the Greek hiero ‘holy’ and glypho ‘writing’. Hieroglyphic signs have a four categories. First, Alphabetic signs represent a single sound. Unfortunately the Egyptians took most vowels for granted and did not represent such as ‘e’ or ‘v’. So we may never know how the words were formed.
There is no recorded history of known early civilization but estimates were around 3100 B.C. Egypt’s government turned into a Presidential Republic after 1952. There is also no known history of what type of government they had before it turned into a Presidential Republic. Right now in Egypt many
Monica Quizhpi LTS-1003 The Quipu and the Inca Civilization 19 March 2017 Writing systems were employed by numerous prehistoric civilizations to provide a visible form of a spoken language. In contrast to other primitive civilizations the Inca civilization is the only Bronze Age civilization without a written language. Despite of the lack or absence of a written dialect, the Inca Civilization was able to administer and govern its territory which stretched along Andes Mountains from modern-day Southern Colombia through Ecuador, Peru and Chile over to Argentina and into the Amazon basin through the use and implication of knots and dyed strings.
The Mayans worshiped a broad array of deities. The exact order of their importance is not exactly clear. However, it is believed that the ancient Mayans called their supreme god Hunab Ku. Hunab Ku was the creator of the universe. He was so sacred that he took no part in everyday human affairs.
During the Aztec and Incan Empire period they did not have the technology we had. They did not have the tractors to farm the fields, the fancy working tools like drills and saws, or even fancy plates or silverware we have today. This Aztec and Incan people had the greatest mentality to come up with thse great inventions to survive that we still use to this day but more modern. These Aztec and Incan people had a very awkaward but advanced way of living. There houses were not the most fanciest place to live in but a lot of them poor houses had this one object and it was found everywhere in the structure of the house in the kitchen and even in the art side of the house.
Social classes really came into play when the calpullis’ had to adapt to more land. Different races, Chichimec/Maya/other tribes, were seen in the mix. Aztec government’s face a royal ruler treated like a god and a council supporting him, even though all the power was with the the ruler and the chief advisor. Nezhualcoyotl, king of the Aztec in the 15th century, wrote a hymn called,
Chicana/o was positioned between indigenism and indigeneity because it emerged from various forms of creativity and political face during the Chicano movement. In addition, it was established following redeployment of different tools from the initiative of the previous indigenism but having different goals and motives as well as the outcome (Rios, 2013). During the late stages of artistic development, pictorial presentations of the indigeneity have been openly embraced by Mexico. It has been widely used as a means of declaring the voice of independence.
The Majority of Mexicans can be classified as or called “Mestizos”. This is because they cannot relate to neither the indigenous or non-Mexican part of their culture. There are two other major groups that can be found in Mexico as well. One is the “Indigenous” groups with was pre-European influence. At one point in time, these “Indigenous” spoke over 62 different languages across all of Mexico.
