The Toltecs

The Toltecs

The Toltecs (or Toltec or Tolteca) were a Pre-Columbian Native American people who dominated much of central Mexico between the 10th and 12th century AD. According to pre-hispanic traditions (compiled in the Historia Tolteca Chichimeca, a codex written between 1547-1560), they may have spoken the language Nahuatl, which was also spoken by the Aztecs. The name Toltec in Nahuatl means "inhabitant of Tollan". Among the Nahua, especially the Aztec, "Tolteca" was synonymous with artist, artisan or wise man. Sometimes is difficult to determine which is meant in references to the historical "tolteca".
