Maps and some History stating the Aztecs left N. America's Utah area and migrated South to Mexico area

Having heard of many legends,myths,stories of migrations these maps may help give evidences of them.

1847 Disturnell Map may show us that the Aztecs did not Migrate North , but Migrated
Map shows us that the Aztecs once lived north of Hopi tribe

The map is connected to the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and shows three
migration points depicting a southerly migration route beginning in Utah and including
an “Antigua Residencia de los Aztecas� – Ancient residence of the Aztecs.

The existence of the Disturnell Map and others now clearly show us that places that had
names like Montezuma and Aztec were already established priority to archaelogical
theories that credit the naming of these places on the romaticism of 19th century U.S.

More evidence can be found to support the Aztec claim to North America through
linguistics. The Uto-Azteca language family spreads from as far north as Canada down
through South America.

Researchers of the maps, Rodriguez and Gonzales also believe that Corn and their
corn-based diets link the families together as one.  According to Rodriguez, "Corn is a
plant whose seeds that must be cultivated. They do not blow in the wind. Once you look
at it, it’s obvious! It is a story about how everyone is related."

In the spring of 2005, The Wisconsin Historical Society and Memorial Library at the
University of Wisconsin at Madison exhibited the 19th-16th century maps that indicate or
allude to an ancient Mesoamerican presence and migrations from what is today the
United States.

The exhibit  included chronicles, codices, annals and interviews regarding oral
traditions that speak to ancient connections between peoples of the north and south.
Part of the objective of the map exhibit examines how cartographers addressed this
subject from the 1500s through the 1800s.

This exhibit is the result of part of the work of several Hopi elders, including the late
David Monongye and Thomas Banyacya, who passed on their knowledge of these
The documents firmly establish that the Hopi never surrendered their sovereignty
and point to an ancient Mexican presence in their midst.
(A special thanks to Frank
Gutierrez, counselor and instructor at East L.A. College, who passed them on to the
researchers, and the many other elders who passed on other knowledge, guidance
and words to them.)

The overall theme of this exhibit is an examination of maps and chronicles from the
1800s-1500s that show Mesoamerican roots in what is today the United States. It is
part of a larger collaborative and ongoing research effort that examines ancient
connections between peoples of the north and south. Many of the maps point to several
sites, purportedly associated with Aztec/Mexica peoples and their migrations, but also
with older ancient Mexican, Chichimeca and Toltec migrations and that of Central and
South American peoples as well.

It CHALLENGES  the mainstream narrative of U.S. archaeology that tells us that it was
the romanticism of 19th century U.S. archaeologists that caused them to place such
place names (Montezuma, Aztec, Anahuac, Tula, etc) throughout what is today the U.S.
However, these maps (representative of hundreds more and found at most major
libraries and research institutions around the world) clearly demonstrate that
such sites
were well-established long before 1776.
The research also examines oral traditions, many which speak of connections (beyond
migration stories of Uto-Azteca peoples) between the north and the south. The concept
of origins/migrations is complex, philosophical and spiritual. The researchers here did
not set out to find one migration route, but rather, to understand why this information
exists on these historic documents. In the process, a clear connection between the
peoples of the north and south has been established to the entire continent or Turtle
Island. One such connection includes agriculture, specifically maize, which is itself
another form of a map.

 1804 Humboldt Map, This map depicts the same three migration points, plus a fourth, more northern one, pointing to Teguayo or the Salt Lake region as the point of departure of ancient Mexican Indians. Humboldt purportedly made his observations based on ancient pre-Columbian codices.

This map depicts the same four migration points as depicted on the Humboldt Map. It is also purportedly based on codices.
1728 Barreiro Map
This is the oldest post-Columbian map which depicts the four migration points of ancient Mexican Indians found in later maps.
Some sources also point to this region as a former home for people from Central and South America also.

1569 Camocio Map TOLTEC EVIDENCE Several maps associate TOLM. with Teguayo. TOLM. is generally found in the present-day U.S. Southwest on 1500s-1600s era maps. Several maps, including the 1569 Camocio map, show its full spelling asTolman, which is purportedly associated with the Toltecs

  1. I too believe that the Aztecs ranged from North America to Mexico. However, my research shows that they traveled North, not south, escaping the rath of Cortez in 1519.
