Although they are presented as harmless, goofy explorations of inane historical side-notes, cable TV specials such as Ancient Aliens and The Lost History of Ancient America normalise expressions of racist intellectual attitudes towards native peoples.
Their basic premise remains: ‘These primitive brown people couldn’t possibly have contributed to our cultural history! It must have been [aliens / giants / prehistorical Europeans]’. Indigenous peoples in North America, Latin America and Africa were practical metallurgists, experimental chemists, civil engineers and urban planners - restoring native peoples to their factual place in human developmental history reveals a dazzlingly beautiful archaeological narrative which throws grubby crypto-fascist conspiracy loons into the shade.
Busting these absurd, revisionist ahistories is an anti-racist duty.

The foundation of Temixtitlan it´s lost in the shadows of time, dated it´s foundations to pre-human times, the city was destroyed and rebuilt thousand of times, the great kings of the Xantilmeh ruled the imponent palace of jade, in modern times, the city it´s home of many magic creatures who came from every corner of the known world.
