ACADEMICS: Mythology Students Research Aztec Culture


Ms. Valerie Coppinger's Intro to Mythology class has been studying Aztec Myths. They recently created some headdresses to celebrate the rich culture and traditions.

"The headdress was one of the central pieces that completed the outfit of some of the more important people. It symbolized not only an addition to the wearer’s style but the status of the wearer as well. The actual making of the headdresses themselves was an ingrained part of the culture.

A headdress was not to be worn by an average person, and there were official laws to ensure certain designs were made only for specific dignitaries. It was by the way of a dress and ornaments that the citizen’s status was measured, and one of the most important items in person’s wardrobe was a headdress (zoesaadia 2015)."
