1. The origin of the Mexica/Aztec along the lower Colorado River.
2. The location of Aztlán, the origin site.
3. The documentation of facts according to the pre-Columbian codices.
4. The existence of Hieroglyphic writing utilized by the ancient peoples of the “Americas”. These key facts, when taken together, should help defeat unfortunate stereotypes and introduce new thinking to the audience.
