Huītzilōpōchtli is the Aztec God of the sun and war. The name translates as Left-Handed Hummingbird. In the Aztec mythology Huītzilōpōchtli defends his Mother from his 400 brothers and one sister who wish to kill her. He throws his sister's head into the sky, where she becomes the moon. His brothers flee into the cosmos to become the stars. In the Aztec worldview, this is why the Sun is constantly chasing the Moon and stars. It is also essential to pay tribute to Huitzilopochtli (The Sun) because if Huitzilopochtli does not have enough strength to battle his siblings, they will destroy their mother and, thus, the world.
