The Codex of Santa Catarina Ixtepeji

The Codex of Santa Catarina Ixtepeji (in Spanish, Códice de Santa Catarina Ixtepeji), a late 17th-early 18th century bilingual codex in the Spanish and Zapotec languages, is a seven-foot-long scroll constituting a hand-painted history and map recounting part of the history of Santa Catarina Ixtepeji. It was re-discovered and identified as part of the holdings of the American Geographical Society Library at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in early 2012. It is believed that it was created as part of a presentation to officials of the Spanish Empire in an effort to establish land titles in the village. [1]
