The Mixtec were a pre-Hispanic ethnic group whose appearance dates back to the year 900 BC in the area of Guerrero and Michoacán (Mexico).

They were great artisans and builders, building important cities and temples, as well as a beautiful pottery and gold work. Important places were Tilantongo (Nuu Tnoo Huahui Andehui), kingdom of the leader Ocho Venado Garra, as well as Yanhuitlán, Apoala, Coixtlahuaca, Tlaxiaco and Tututepec. The existing social classes were the rulers, the Macehuales (co-proprietors with its own land), the peasants without land and the slaves. They beat and assimilated the Zapotecs, and at the beginning of the 15th century were dominated by the Aztecs.

These bronze pre-coin objects were object of exchange between pre-Columbian peoples. Hernan Cortes described that 1 chopping board was changed for 8,000 cocoa seeds.
