AZTEC MYTHOLOGY

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

HUEHUECOYOTL

Aztec Trickster God

Also known as ANCIENT-DRUM, OLD-OLD-COYOTE

Aztec Trickster God who loves a good party

He’s the Old, Old Coyote, an all-singing, all-dancing Trickster God of Parties, Performance and Over-Indulgence.

There’s a lot of Native American COYOTE in his make-up, with tricks, pranks and japes being perpetrated at every opportunity. Like COYOTE, he is also a shape-shifter.

During festivals, the drum would sound and he would inspire people to out-do each other in song. He’s therefore a God of Karaoke too.
