Default Mexica Yaotl

WAR! it's in our blood. The Mexica were born out of war. When they came into Tenochtitlan, they were mercenaries. You know, taking care of business for the local tribes. So guess what? It is the same shit I did for the military. I fought for the US Army for monetary gain.

Yaotl means enemy, not warrior.

Over 90% of the Mexica died, gtfo son. Barely anyone has Mexica genes. 90% died, and the rest of the 10% were probably bred out.

Your comment reminds me, you never replied anything to the information I provided in response to your claims on an earlier thread.



As a reminder:

Now I think there were around 1 million aztecs in total? 90% of that means 100,000 survived. What's the population of Mexico? It's around 110 million today. After the conquest, the indians were overwhelmed by the Spanish and to some extent Africans. You cannot tell me that these 100k people did some major repopulation in the length of 500 years. Therefore, only a very small percentage of the current Mexican population is of Mexica descent. Most are from other tribes.

Now certainly not all were Mexica, but they certainly acounted for more than 4% of the empire's population.

2_By 1650, there were approximately, in the entire Spanish America, 700,000 "whites" (peninsulares and criollos), 700,000 Africans, 1 million mestizos and 5million Indians. * edit: meaning they were very fram from being "overwhelmed" *

And yes, they did do "some major repopulation" from then on, as their bodies had developped the resistances to the viruses (it is estimated they started developping it around the 3rd generation post-conquest around 1560-70s) and the memory of the Conquest started to fade away: fecundity and natality rates finally picked up and the population started growing again, after roughly 150 years of decline.

3_Today in Mexico, Nahuatl speakers number approximately 2.5million, granted this doesn't take into account the vast numbers who lost the language. How many of those are descendants of the Mexica, I think it's fair to say no one knows.

I hope you are proud for providing services to an Imperialist country. Are you sure this is not the conquistador blood in you speaking?
