On the round sand mound:
Tlatelolco

The myth tells us that Huitzilopochtli delivered two sacred bundles to two different groups of nahuas, the tenochcas of Tenochtitlan and the tlatelolcas of Tlatelolco. When opening them, one contained the sticks to generate the fire and the other a precious green stone.

The two groups fought over the precious stone until the solar deity made a decision. The mexica would have sticks to make fire, an element associated with war, while the tlatelolcas would have jade, an element associated with wealth and commerce. This decision defined the nature and destiny of both peoples until they inevitably went to war. Do you want to know who won? I invite you to walk through Tlatelolco.

 

Before the arrival of the Europeans, this ancient city was the twin of Tenochtitlan. It was also the first “city of Indians” that was under the government of the Tlahtoani Cuauhtemoc after the Conquest. Tlatelolco has witnessed the great transformations of Mexico, from the construction of the largest housing complex in America to the massacre of students in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in 1968, as well as the earthquake that devastated Mexico City on September 19, 1985. In this place the last resistance of the mexica people was also waged during the siege of Tenochtitlán imposed by Cortés and his hosts.
