The bottom right corner of a folio of the Codex Azcatitlan shows an Indigenous Nahua migrant woman kneeling on the floor and holding a child on her lap, gazing attentively at what lies in front of her: the sizable severed head of a hummingbird over a blanket. This unlikely sight shows the contents of what was arguably the most sacred object in the Mexica world: the bundle of Huitzilopochtli, the solar-warrior-hummingbird god. This object accompanied the Mexica along their migration to central Mexico. According to various versions of the story, the bundle guided them along the way, and showed them the path. The Codex Azcatitlan is the sole instance in which the bundle is undone, the only witnesses to its sacred interior an anonymous migrant woman and her child. This talk analyzes the sudden emergence of this Guardian of the Sacred Bundle in this Indigenous painted history of migration, at a time when the first Spanish colonial Inquisitorial case against migrants for carrying a hummingbird bundle appears in the archival record.
