Mixtec standard-bearer, priest, warlord This warlord's outfit is based on those worn by Eight Deer Nacuaa, king of Tilantongo, from the codex nuttall. He is armed with an atlatl, a weapon favored by the Mixtec upper crust. The priest is based off of Eight Deer's father in the codices bodley and nuttall.
