Starting from 1521 the conqueror-colonizer stripped the invaded people of five cultural elements to keep them dominated, unconscious and submissive: language, historical memory, knowledge, spaces and Spirituality.
The invaded-conquered peoples, upon losing these five cultural elements, forgot their essence and root, remaining: dumb and silent, amnesiac and alien to themselves, stupid e impotent, pariah without root and disinherited, idolatrous and fanatic.
Each of these cultural losses represents a deep vein that explains the resigned acceptance of the Holocaust in which we live. Our inability to end colonization. The lack of awareness and ability to end abuse, injustice, exploitation of our people and the criminal looting of our natural resources. The practice of "the Creole ideology" of foreigners, creoles, but above all, "that of us against ourselves".
But in this occasion will only review the loss of "historical memory". The anahuacas are a very ancient civilization. From the invention of the agriculture until the departure of Quetzalcoatl (Preclassical and classical periods), approximately took more than 68 centuries. The historical memory was par excellence one of the structural bases of the Cem Anahuac peoples and cultures. The simple fact of maintaining a coordinated and rigorous observation of celestial mechanics, from what is now Nicaragua to the northern U.S., required records of dozens of centuries which were maintained, not only by the pictograms, carved stones, and Mayan writing, but primarily by orality, which implies the awareness and commitment of the people and authorities to maintain their historical memory, heritage, essence and their roots. the huehueh nenotzaliazalizamoxtlahcuilolli the old story of the codices. The nican mihtoa, motenehua, here it is said, is spoken, the topial tlahtolli, our legacy, the word.
"They were our grandparents, our grandmothers,
our great-grandparents, our great-grandmothers,
our great great grandparents, our ancestors.
Their story was repeated as a speech,
they left for us and came to bequeath it,
to who now live,
to those who came out of them.
It will never be lost,
Will never be forgotten
what they came to do,
what they came to set,
their black ink, their red ink,
their name, their history, their memory.
