Modern Day Cultural Influences
The Aztecs beliefs and way of life would turn out to be one of the greatest legends in the world. Also because of their large empire and epic story line many people and cities in Mexico make their money off of tourism for the Aztec temples and cities. Also as you can tell by reading religious influences you can know that the Aztecs have also been noticed on the Mexican Coat of arms featuring an eagle sitting on a cactus with a snake in it's mouth. This came from an Aztec belief that the gods wanted them to march until they found an eagle sitting on a cactus with a snake in it's mouth and that would become their new capitol city. Also, the Aztecs have also influenced the use of some modern day technology. One such construct is the Aztec's canoe which they would use as a large system of transportation throughout Mexico and today many people use them for things such as fishing, enjoyment, or transportation through rivers and streams. Also the Aztecs have played a part in the world of slavery taking in many Spanish slaves which caused the Spanish to fight back. This is similar to how the slaves in the United States befriended the Northern States so the North helped to fight the South. Also the Aztecs help to influences some of today's mathematics since many Spanish learned some of the Aztec language and math and passed it on. Also the Aztecs have found a way to track the stars,planets, and the moon to create a calender that they would live by, this is the Aztec calender. The Aztecs have made many things possible in the world of technology and have also left their mark when it comes to their beliefs.
