A. Sutherland - - The Mixtec people called themselves the Ñuu Savi - "People of the Rain" and lived in three mountainous areas of present-day Oaxaca in Southwestern Mexico.

Their homeland was the Mixteca. The Mixtec never built large cities similar to Tula or Teotihuacan, but instead lived and worked in smaller settlements in neighboring valleys. The king was the supreme governor and leader of the army, assisted by a group of noble officials and counselors.

The majority of the population, however, was made up of farmers, artisans, merchants, serfs, and enslaved people. Mixtec artisans are famous for their mastery as smiths, potters, gold-workers, and carvers of precious stones. Eight codices have survived from the Mixtec peoples of ancient Oaxaca, Mexico; a part of one of them, the Codex Zouche-Nuttall, is the subject of this book.

As a group, the Mixtec codices contain the longest detailed histories and royal genealogies known for any indigenous people in the western hemisphere.The Mixtec invasions of the valley probably began in earnest around The Mixtec occupied the hilly, northern part of Oaxaca; their records, which extend to the 7th century, show them to have been organized into a series of petty states headed by aggressive, warlike kings.The Mixtec Kings and Their People, Ronald Spores, University of Oklahoma Press, ; The Cloud People: Divergent Evolution of the Mixtec and Zapotec Civilizations, Kent Flannery and Joyce Marcus, (eds.), Percheron Press, Stories in Red and Black: Pictorial Histories of the Aztec and Mixtec, Eliabeth Hill Boone, University of Texas Press.
