- Nahualt was the language of the Aztecs. Even today numerous rites of the pre-Colombian period continue to exist on the fringe of the Catholic religion. To the beat of the Teponsastle-the drum incarnation of the god Texcatlipoca-the Human-Jaguars mingle with the faithful. They will martyr and flagellate themselves until they draw blood to beg Saint Nicholas to intercede with the gods to let it rain.
