The Codex Mendoza with Dr. Daniela Bleichmar

Codex Mendoza

Around 1541, the first viceroy of the viceroyalty of New Spain commissioned this codex created by Indigenous artist(s) containing information about the Mexica (Aztec) empire—who the lords of Tenochtitlan were, the tribute paid to the Aztecs, and an account of life “from year to year.” Join Dr. Daniela Bleichmar in this conversation about how to approach this fascinating work in the classroom.
