According to the Codex Rios, or the Vatican A codex, the Italian translation of an ancient manuscript written during the Spanish Conquest, Giant beings lived in Mesoamerica. According to the depictions of the codex, Aztec warriors fought against giant beings.
The Quinametzin Giants, according to Aztec History , populated this world during the previous era of the Sun Rain. Interestingly, it is said that the Quinametzin giants built the ancient citadel of Teotihuacan (Place where men become Gods) and the Great Temple of Cholula. Ten Quinametzin are mentioned in ancient Mexica history . It is said that when the Spanish conquistadores came to America, they saw, real flesh and blood giants.
According to legend, and accounts of the Spanish invasion in the book “The Broken Spears” Giants lived among the Aztecs, and one of their heroes, Tzilacatzin helped fight the Spanish during an attempt of hostile takeover of the ancient city of Tenochtitlan. Tzilacatzin managed to defend Tenochtitlan by throwing huge stones at the Spanish Conquistadores, and his courage and strength can be seen in the Florentine Codex. It cannot be denied that there have been giants in this country. I can affirm this as an eyewitness, for I have met men of monstrous stature here. I believe that there are many in Mexico who will remember, as I do, a giant Indian who appeared in a procession of the feast of Corpus Christi. He appeared dressed in yellow silk and a halberd at his shoulder and a helmet on his head. And he was all of three feet taller than the others.” ‑Fray Diego Duran. #mexica #aztec #aztecs #maya #mayas #olmec #olmecs #indigenous #indigenouspeople #indigenouspride #native #nativeamerican #nativepride #tuscaloosa
