Push and pull factors

Push and Pull Factors

In 1519 the Aztec Empire (also known as Mexico) was invaded by Spain. Two years later in 1521, the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan was conquered by an alliance between Spanish and Tlaxcaltes. Tlaxcaltes was Mexico’s enemy. It would take another two centuries after the Siege of Tenochtitlan before the Conquest of the Aztec Empire would be complete, as rebellions, attacks, and wars continued against the Spanish by other native peoples.

Some pull factors are they were peaceful hunter-gatherers. There was plenty of land and they had fertile soil. Spain ruled Mexico for over 3,ooo years. During that time many of Mexico’s Native Americans were killed. Push factors were there was the independence war which killed over 10% of Mexicans. Many people left Mexico because of the war.
