A New Addition
Every Monday night at 8:00 p.m. (EST) will be
another Charlie Chan mystery played "live" in
the chat room at The Charlie Chan Family Home
We would like to help make it more enjoyable by
highlighting part of Rush Glick's notes . . . a sort
of Chan Vocabulary.
This week will be "The Feathered Serpent":
Aztecs: People of Central Mexico whose civilzation
was at its height at the time of the Spanish conquest
in the early sixteenth century.
Feathered Serpent: The original Aztec word would
be Quetzalcoatl. The work is also associated with
the planet Venus, the wind and to a mythological
Toltec ruler. The Mayan word for the feathered
serpent, Kukulcan (or Kukutan), was used in
reference to a carved figure that was found in the
Aztec Temple of the Sun in "The Feathered Serpent."
Posada (Sanish): Inn.
