Originally I thought hoksila was the word 'boy' in the Aztec language Nahuatle. I found out later that many southern Indians used this word, and that it was not specific to the Aztecs. I came into a fascination of the culture after readings Gary Jenning's two Aztec books. Yes, you read that right, two. The third was not written by him, rather written on his behalf. Gary's brother is suing over the third books use of his name.
