Welcome to this exhibition regarding the form, content, and import of these pre-Hispanic and Early-Colonial documents. The theme of this year’s exhibit is Continuity.
As you move through the exhibit, you will be moving chronologically through time. Despite spanning hundreds of years, dozens of languages and dialects, and at least three culturally distinct empires, you will notice how enduring the form and content is in general.
