A special thanks to Cleo Kamelhar for use of her husband Murray Kamelhar’s History of Mexico documentary.

Using the voices of four actors and 334 slides, the personalities, artists, and events from the Olmecs to the present time, the History of Mexico comes alive.

The heroic Mexican people triumphantly survived their victories and defeats against overwhelming odds, through tragedy and determination. The History of Mexico covers a period of more than three millennia. First populated more than 13,000 years ago, the territory had complex indigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. One important aspect of Mesoamerican civilizations was their development of a form of writing, proving that Mexico’s written history stretches back hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spaniards in 1519.
