I’m sorry, I still can’t get over the fact that Austria is FUCKING LENDING US OUR NATIONAL IDENTITY SYMBOL.
Do they not realize how proud we are of our indigenous background????? WE ARE STILL LIVING IT. It’s part of us. All of us at some point have indigenous blood. It’s not Moctezuma, but another great tlatoani (emperor, Nezahualcóyotl) features our friggin $100 bills. In fact, our indigenous background/identity is featured in ALL OF OUR BILLS AND COINS. It permeates every aspect of our lives and culture.
This is a political and spiritual symbol for us.
It’s coming back home, at last. And it better stay with us.
