Location of Aztlán[edit]

At the Aztec Exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Art, a couple of years ago, Aztlán was described as being 'an island to the east.' —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.100.250.208 (talkcontribs) October 23, 2006 (UTC)

I've heard this mentioned often, but I've never found substantial evidence of it. Does anyone have confirmation that Aztlán was thought of as an island in the east? --Izzly (talk) 16:33, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
It very clearly and emphatically was not thought to be that. This is just confusing Plato and Aztec myth because of what is perceived to be similar sounds. ·Maunus·ƛ· 16:49, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Aztlan Location[edit]

What do you mean by an island to the east? East as in Japan, or east as some island in the carribean (east of Mexico)? The reason why I say Japan is that they found human remains in Hokkaido of 10,000 years ago (BCE) and the DNA of a few of the human remains was D-1 Haplogroup (which also has been traced to Mongolia, Siberia) which is the same DNA genetic markers that many of the Aztec human remains have. If Aztlan is Hokkaido, Japan, then that would make sense for we have genetic proof to do the matches. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.245.105.217 (talk) 02:21, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Aztlān[edit]

I think the page for Aztlán should be divided to separate the mythical and/or historic city of Aztlān from the Chicano Youth Movement topics. I think perhaps a separate Aztlán (Political_Movement) page would be in order. Also it would seem prudent to rename the page as Aztlān in keeping with the Nahuatl language. Stormcellardoor (talk) 19:50, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Well, agree about the separate page and (partially) object to renaming the page into Nahuatl.
I can't speak for usage within Mexico, but in the US the political meaning is much more prevalent; however, its original idea seems to have been to reference that America really was a homeland and homecoming for Chicanos and not a place of exile. So it is somewhat appropriate to discuss it all together on the same page; although if so the page should be reworked to include more context for the modern political idea both among the Chicano movement & among anti-illegal immigrant groups.
If there is a separate page, it would make sense to have Aztlan (Aztec) simply be Aztlān and Aztlan (US) be Aztlán with Aztlan as a disambig between them & other uses (such as the journal.) However, if it stays one page, the most appropriate modern use is from the Spanish, I'd think. -LlywelynII (talk) 18:16, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

--Aztlan-- There are some resources connecting the Aztlan origin to Egypt as evident in the discoveries of Egyptian artifacts and underground dwellings found in the United States, mainly Illinois, Burrow tunnels and Colorado's, Grand Canyons — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.22.58.14 (talk) 13:52, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Aztlán[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Aztlán's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 07:50, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done checked and what's currently present looks good... Boogerpatrol (talk) 03:15, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
