From the Yukon to the Pampas, post Native American art and architecture.
I find it funny how something like this is similar to something found in Africa
Aztecs were pretty based imo. One of the few people to be truly free from anything resembling Western christian guilt-ridden slave bullshit.
Did the indians in what's now the eastern US have any large-scale architecture beyond wigwams and such? The aztecs and anasazi had some pretty cool-looking architecture. I'm trying to understand why (AFAIK) the guys more towards the east never bothered building anything with stone or brick like that.
its because while the eastern woodlands natives weren't fully nomadic they were migratory and only built semi-permanent structures that could be struck and moved easily
What comes to mind is the Mississippian Culture, but they weren't exactly in the Eastern US.
tbqhwu better than faggy liberal western civilization that worships weakness disease and perversion.
>tfw you will never know what it feels like to honor the gods by sacrificing captives you took during the flower wars
it does feel pretty great to know that no matter what kind of problems we have today I don't have to worry about the state church arresting me then having my chest cavity sliced open and heart torn out while still alive
Honestly the destruction of mesoamerican codices is probably one of the greatest cultural crimes ever commited. The Aztecs had a philosopher class similar to the classical greeks, whose only job was to write poetry and interpret reality.
Think of the Aztecs as Mesoamerica's equivalent to the Assyrians.
Both arose after civilization in their region was about 2000-2500 years old, both carried out huge and benevolent irrigation projects, both built the first truly militaristic empires in their regions, both reached new heights in art and architecture that their region had never seen before, and both were pure evil bitch ass motherfuckers who everyone despised.
i used to love visiting the cahokia mounds and museum in stl back when i was a kid
its pretty cool how giant that civilization was before european contact and how we still have so much of it left to learn about
well there were small native cities among the Iroquoisan and Huron peoples, though nothing compared to the Aztec, Mayan or Incans.
When Jacques Cartier made contact with the village of Hochelaga at the site of modern day Montreal in 1535 he described it as a town of roughly 3,000 natives with about 50 longhouses made of wood and brick all surrounded by a large wooden palisade wall.
Though when he returned a decade later the whole place had been abandoned, likely due to plague and war with the Huron. The original Montreal settlement was built on the foundation of that village.
It doesn't look it, but Monk's Mound in Cahokia is wider than the Pyramid of Giza.
if you guys are big into mesoamerican culture you might enjoy a game called Expeditions: conquistador where you play as a spanish conquistador in mexico and can choose to be either the traditional rape and pillage conqueror or a benevolent white dude who just wants to trade. I had a lot of fun with it.
