Ethnographer A person who studies the branch of anthropology which deals with the scientific description of individual cultures. Midwife a person trained to assist women in childbirth Aztec Literature Florentine Codex Intended to preserve preconquest ethnography.

Life of Aztec Empire promoted commerce and trade Several types of money were in regular use cacao beans a small rabbit was worth 30 beans a turkey egg cost 3 beans a tamale cost a single bean quachtli standardized lengths of cotton cloth were used for larger purchases Decline due to small pox and other diseases Mythology and Religion Aztecs made reference to at least two manifestations of the supernatural: European scholars routinely mistranslated them as "god" or "demon" see an eagle devouring a snake perched on a fruit-bearing nopal cactus Coat of arms of Mexico Aztec Mythology Worshipped hundreds of Gods and Goddesses Mictlan (dead land: the grim) - ordinary dead: Dantesque underworld whose inner precincts were reached after a perilous journey (4 years) past mountains, deserts, and guardian beasts. Tlalocan (the pleasant) evergreen abode of Tlaloc, the rain god: those who died by drowning Warriors paradise in the sky: reserved for warriors slain in battle, people who died when hit by lightning, and women who died in childbed.
