EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history, depicting the renowned Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortez receiving a group of 20 enslaved Nahua women from the tribe. Amongst these women stands La Malinche, also known as Marina or Malintzin, who would go on to play a pivotal role in Cortez's conquest of Mexico. La Malinche was not only chosen by Cortez as his lover but also served as his trusted interpreter and adviser throughout his campaign. Hailing from the Mexican Gulf Coast, she possessed remarkable linguistic skills that enabled her to bridge the communication gap between Cortez and the indigenous people he encountered. In this illustration by Jacob van der Schley, we witness an intriguing blend of power dynamics and cultural exchange. The image offers us a glimpse into an era when empires clashed and new worlds were discovered. It serves as a testament to both the resilience of native tribes like the Nahua and their unfortunate subjugation at the hands of European conquerors. As we delve into this historical archive piece, it is important to acknowledge its significance while appreciating its artistic value. This vintage engraving transports us back to a time when boundaries were being redrawn and civilizations forever altered – reminding us that understanding our past is crucial for shaping our future.
