mexican warrior

Diego Rivera, Indian Warrior (Portable mural panel), 1931.


Yaotécpatl was one of the most experienced warriors of the Mexica Empire in its heyday, and he was a powerful nahual.

He gain the range of tzitzimitl warrior with only 23 years old and participated in numerous campaigns of conquest taking numerous prisoners.

However, his greatest achievement was the single combat that he took against the  tzitzimime released by owl nahuals who used  powerful spells of necromancy.

 He could kill the terrible monster, which wreaked havoc on the population of Chapultepec, but he  had to sacrifice his life.


Not a random crossover, Panda and Prohyas share the same VA in the mexican/latin american dub, and is amazing because both are adorable c:

I think is called Miguel Angel Ruíz

Also he voices Hot Dog Guy (The Amazing World of Gumball) and Joey Felt (Atomic Puppet). Oh yeah, the wonders of the mexican dubbing ^u^

         Extremely Rare and Historical Moment Captured

                     Poncho Villa and Emiliano Zapata

Pictured here together in 1914. From what I know Zapata had no presidential aspirations as you can see he refused to sit in the president’s chair. “Villa is in that chair” and he most likely or by some accounts factually harbored presidential aspirations but like I said not documented or quoted but by accounts of those closest to him. But if they were true or not nothing would become of it. He was assassinated in 1923. Either way what a awesome and telling picture!

anonymous asked:

I want to dress as an indigenous Mexican warrior (I'm Mexican) but one of the things it involves is painting your body and face grey. I know there was an entire discourse about whether or not grey paint was considered blackface, and I don't want to offend anyone. The grey itself is more white and pale than black, but I wanted to know your stance on it?

Is this a serious question…. no that’s not black face

Thank you for caring about offending… but do you know what Black Face is? I’d look it up because then you would have already known the answer to this question.

‘The First Regiment of the Socialist Brigade of Mexico, Feminine Sex’, a group of women in Mexico City who pledged loyalty to the Conventionalist government of Zapata and Villa during the Mexican Revolution, and swore to defend Mexico City if the Constitutionalist Army attempted to retake it. Here, they are on parade in the city in early 1915.
