This article needs to be expanded. Tlaxcala has a rich history and is of key importance to understanding the conquest of the Mexica. There's also a multilingual translators' network called Tlaxcala. There are a number of (very well) translated texts online but they don't seem to have a website?!? Just an email addy: transtlaxcala@yahoo.com . If you know about them please start a new article, I think they're relevant.--84.188.135.254 02:03, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Problems with sex trafficking section[edit]

I fixed what I could. While I am sure that this town is a source of prostitution and human trafficking, the information sources all seem to borrow or repeat one another. A lot of the articles (especially the Huffpo article) are lifting passages directly from the slide deck that was used as a cite. By the way, is a slide deck considered adequate as a cite? There is no indication of what the deck was for, although it is quite informative if a reliable source. A lot of this WP section just doesn't seem to be substantiated by the very sources it cites. Hell, the section even contradicted the top of the page by stating that the town of Tenancingo is the capital of the state, and the interWP link of the town went to the wrong town. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.196.137.27 (talk) 04:48, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Subordinate?[edit]

I don't think "subordinate" is the right word to use to describe the relationship between the Spaniards' God and the Tlaxcallans' gods. "Integrate" is probably the called-for word. But I can't be sure because I don't know enough about the subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.109.56.162 (talk) 22:58, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Would be good to know what exactly happened to the Tlaxcalans after the defeat of the aztecs. Were they treated preferably by the spanish after the war? Or did the spanish treat them as any other native? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.12.222.85 (talk) 16:27, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Tlaxcalans after the conquest[edit]

Tlaxcalans were given special priveleges for being allied to the Spanish during the Conquest. They were allowed to have their own tribunals, to ride horses, to carry Spanish Arms and strangely enough to wear feathered hats.
Spaniards weren't allowed to purchase land in Tlaxcala, this caused the beginning of Puebla a short distance away. In the event of disputes messages would be sent to the King of Spain to settle them. This was long & time consuming. Priveleges went on for about a hundred years but were eroded awy by the time consuming settlements . Also Spaniards found loopholes in the law to get land by marrying natives. What the Tlaxcalans gained was lost over the decades.

Is there a native name"Omageney"?[edit]

see[1],the name occurs in early versions but was removed in January 2010.--zh:User:Inspector,09:21, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

the earliest record of this name being added is onJan 14,2009--zh:User:Inspector,09:54, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

sex trade as part of economy[edit]

Should this be in the article and if so, does it really merit its own section WP:UNDUE. It is a major economic element of one very small town of the state, not of the entire state.Thelmadatter (talk) 20:34, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
