1847 Disturnell Map may show us that the Aztecs did not Migrate North , but
Migrated South.
Map shows us that the Aztecs once lived north of Hopi tribe

The map is connected to the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and shows
three migration points depicting a southerly migration route beginning in
Utah and including an “Antigua Residencia de los Aztecas� –
Ancient residence of the Aztecs.

The existence of the Disturnell Map and others now clearly show us that
places that had names like Montezuma and Aztec were already established
priority to archaelogical theories that credit the naming of these places on
the romaticism of 19th century U.S. archaeologists.

More evidence can be found to support the Aztec claim to North America
through linguistics. The Uto-Azteca language family spreads from as far
north as Canada down through South America.

Researchers of the maps, Rodriguez and Gonzales also believe that Corn
and their corn-based diets link the families together as one.  According to
Rodriguez, "Corn is a plant whose seedsthat must be cultivated. They do
not blow in the wind. Once you look at it, it’s obvious! It is a story about
how everyone is related."

Aztlanahuac: Mesoamerica in North America Map Exhibit

In the spring of 2005, The Wisconsin Historical Society and Memorial
Library at the University of Wisconsin at Madison exhibited the 19th-16th
century maps that indicate or allude to an ancient Mesoamerican presence
and migrations from what is today the United States.

The exhibit  included chronicles, codices, annals and interviews regarding
oral traditions that speak to ancient connections between peoples of the
north and south. Part of the objective of the map exhibit examines how
cartographers addressed this subject from the 1500s through the 1800s.

This exhibit is the result of part of the work of several Hopi elders, including
the late David Monongye and Thomas Banyacya, who passed on their
knowledge of these maps.
The documents firmly establish that the Hopi
never surrendered their sovereignty and point to an ancient Mexican
presence in their midst.
(A special thanks to Frank Gutierrez, counselor and
instructor at East L.A. College, who passed them on to the researchers,
and the many other elders who passed on other knowledge, guidance and
words to them.)

The overall theme of this exhibit is an examination of maps and chronicles
from the 1800s-1500s that show Mesoamerican roots in what is today the
United States. It is part of a larger collaborative and ongoing research effort
that examines ancient connections between peoples of the north and south.
Many of the maps point to several sites, purportedly associated with
Aztec/Mexica peoples and their migrations, but also with older ancient
Mexican, Chichimeca and Toltec migrations and that of Central and South
American peoples as well.

It CHALLENGES  the mainstream narrative of U.S. archaeology that tells us
that it was the romanticism of 19th century U.S. archaeologists that caused
them to place such place names (Montezuma, Aztec, Anahuac, Tula, etc)
throughout what is today the U.S. However, these maps (representative of
hundreds more and found at most major libraries and research institutions
around the world) clearly demonstrate that
such sites were well-established
long before 1776.

The research also examines oral traditions, many which speak of
connections (beyond migration stories of Uto-Azteca peoples) between the
north and the south. The concept of origins/migrations is complex,
philosophical and spiritual. The researchers here did not set out to find one
migration route, but rather, to understand why this information exists on
these historic documents. In the process, a clear connection between the
peoples of the north and south has been established to the entire continent
or Turtle Island. One such connection includes agriculture, specifically
maize, which is itself another form of a map.
Turtle Island
The Hopi  tradition, the turtle island is North America, with four arms a head and a tail. One arm is Baja, another the Bay Area
peninsula, another is Florida, the other long island is Nova Scotia.  The tail leads town to Central America, the head the Bering Strait.
According to the Chusmash Indians of California, Mu was the west coast of
the Americas.   According to the legends, the west coast of Mu sunk into
the Pacific ocean (off of Malibu, etc).  That leaves the rest of the Americas,
and Aztecan/Atlantis as possibly one and the same continental mass that went
"missing" as most of its coastal lands on either side have sunk into the sea, as
well as some parts having suddenly risen several thousand feet.   The melting
of the ice age glaciers also helped to drown the coastal areas that were left.

Since these coastal, frequented places no longer existed, having sunk, no doubt
this may have given place to the rumor of the entire "place" being gone??

1804 Humboldt Map
This map depicts the same three migration points, plus a fourth,
more northern one, pointing to Teguayo or the Salt Lake region as
the point of departure of ancient Mexican Indians. Humboldt
purportedly made his observations based on ancient pre-Columbian
This map depicts the same four migration points as depicted on the Humboldt
Map. It is also purportedly based on codices.
Interesting Map and article.
If one notices, the "Aztlanders" always had encampments and "towns" along major waterways (rivers).  The
Mississippi River also had hidden away Mayan townships and encampments  which had been covered and silted
over due to ancient flooding.  These were first
discovered with infra-red photography, and some have since been uncovered.

1728 Barreiro Map
This is the oldest post-Columbian map which depicts the four migration points of
ancient Mexican Indians found in later maps. Some sources also point to this
region as a former home for people from Central and South America also.
1569 Camocio Map
Several maps associate TOLM. with Teguayo. TOLM. is generally found in the
present-day U.S. Southwest on 1500s-1600s era maps. Several maps,
including the 1569 Camocio map, show its full spelling as Tolman, which is
purportedly associated with the Toltecs

The Old Red Land
North America (Laurentia) collides
with Northern Europe (Baltica) to form
the "Old Red Sandstone" continent.
During the Cretaceous period  it appears that Europe, Greenland, and North America were still connected moving
At the beginning of the Cretaceous in North America, the Mexican Sea of the late Jurassic period spread over
Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and parts of Arizona, Kansas, and Colorado. During later Cretaceous period the
Colorado Sea became the greatest of the North American Mesozoic seas and extended all the way from Mexico up
into the Arctic, covering most of central North America. Near the end of the Cretaceous the conditions in the west
were similar to those of the Carboniferous period with swamps and bogs forming which would later become
valuable deposits of coal.

During the close of the Cretaceous period, the Rockies and the East Andes mountains became elevated and
there were extensive flows of lava. The Appalachians, which had been reduced almost to a base level by erosion,
were rejuvenated, and the seas retreated from all parts of the continent.

The mountains in North Carolina continued to experience erosion. During the last half of the period, eastern areas
sank slowly below sea level and the ocean invaded the Coastal Plain. Rocks in the Blue Ridge and Piedmont rose
slightly. Warm climate in North Carolina.

By the end of the Cretaceous, about 75% of all species, including marine, freshwater, and terrestrial organisms,
became extinct. The rather abrupt disappearance of Cretaceous life remains a mystery. A popular theory was
introduced in 1980 by Luis Alvarez and his colleagues at the University of California. Alvarez suggested that the
Earth was struck by an asteroid or comet about 6 miles (10 kilometers) in diameter around 65 million years ago.
Such an impact an impact (or series of impacts) would spread dust into the atmosphere, suppressing
photosynthesis and disrupting the food chain. Evidence of an impact includes a layer of iridium in the rock record,
plus some probable impact craters dated back to the late Cretaceous.

The Cretaceous period was marked in North America and Europe, by extensive submergence of the continents.
Changes both in the Earth’s surface and its flora and fauna brought the Mesozoic to a close at the end of
the period.
The Cherokee speak  about coming from the 'OLD RED LAND '
Most thought that this had to have been Venus.
My belief is that the Old Red Land is not Venus but Old Earth. Click the following link

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank

"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
