The word #Azteca was NOT created by Von Humboldt! | #xicanism #Nikantitlakah #decolonize

In our quest to regain indigenous identities, we often over-romanticize, overreact, overreach, overcompensate, and over-everything. In doing so, many have accepted many things that are told to them by teachers, elders, etc., without giving things a second thought. As a result, we have come to accept as fact a great number of things that are simply wrong and sometimes even easily disproven. We have unfortunately also dismissed many things that are correct and easily proven. Question everything, think critically, and don’t fall into either of those traps. Verify everything for yourself. As it turns out, some of us did call ourselves Azteca.
