Introducing a new series. Things you were never taught in school about native Americans. I hope to impart some glimpse at false history and have some fun educating people as well. These will most likely be short and scattered randomly. I will do two today because I want to start the series off right. This will be all for today. Until next week!

Fact #18


Long before contact with Europeans, the Aztec patronized barbershops established in large, thriving urban centers. Ancient Aztec barbers differed from the Old World barbers, who were referred to as barber-surgeons and who performed bloodletting and crude surgery. Instead, their work more closely resembled that of present-day hair stylists. Aztec barbershop patrons either had their heads shaved or had their hair trimmed or washed in these establishments.
