THE AZTECS HISTORY

How do the Aztecs and their gods depend on each other?

The Aztecs and their Sun god

The Aztecs give the Sun god blood from sacrifices .They give blood to the sun god to give him strength but I infer that they do that to let him be the sun god. But they did kill (sacrifice ) humans to give the blood to their gods. From the article Aztec Empire for kids stated” They felt that in order for the sun to rise each day the Aztecs needed to perform rituals and sacrifices to give the sun strength.”

The priests were responsible for transporting the blood of the people to the gods. The Aztecs were killed for their blood to give to their gods so the gods wouldn’t get mad with them. They had to perform all sorts of ceremonies in the temples to make sure that the gods were not angry with the Aztecs.
