UNLV’s Department of Anthropology and Latin American Institute presents, ‘Aztec’ Testaments: Indigenous Archives In Central Mexico a talk by Dr. Miriam Melton-Villanueva, assistant professor of history, UNLV.
Using Nahuatl-language colonial documents, Dr. Melton-Villanueva’s research proves indigenous writing and notarial traditions continued into the 19th century, reaching even beyond the Independence period.
Dr. Melton-Villanueva's book manuscript, The Nahuas at Independence: Culture Keeping in Central Mexico, 1799-1832 uses native-language ethnohistory to contradict the narrative of disappearance, adding the voices of Nahuatl-speaking women and men to history.
This event is free however, seating is limited.
