Chichimeca - Mexico
Chichimeca Jonaz | Mision de Chichimecas, Guanajuato | Mexico, 2017
The origin of the Mexican coat of arms is bound up with an Aztec legend. It is said that a god named Huitzilopochtli told the chief of a nomadic group that they would encounter an eagle standing on top of a cactus and eating a snake, and that they should settle at this spot. They did indeed find the eagle and the settlement they started was named Tenochtitlan. Today this place is known as Mexico City.
