Chimalli Hummingbird Danzante Azteca Dance Shield Blue White Feathers, 20", Aztec Pow wow, Netotiliztli, Mexica, Tribe, Indigenous Made

The Aztecs recognized in the hummingbird all the attributes necessary to be a good warrior and this bird became the main symbol of their principal god, called Huitzilopochtli, “who predicted an imperial destiny for them” and who guided them through a journey to a promised land.

Netotiliztli, often known as the dance of celebration and worship, was a traditional dance practiced by the Mexica people. As a pre-Hispanic tradition, it was a spiritual dance, deeply associated with the worship of Aztec gods. Each movement had a connection to the four elements (water, fire, wind, and earth) and to the four cardinal points (North, South, East and West).
