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

Barbershop

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.
