Two Mexican activists infiltrated the Weltmuseum in Vienna last week, swapping its audio guides for their own hacked versions to protest the history and ownership of the headdress of Moctezuma.In the modified audioguide, Xokonoschtletl Gómora, a descendant of the Aztecs who has repeatedly called for the crown to be returned to Mexico, describes the artefact’s arrival in Vienna as “a consequence of the European looting of the historical heritage that is exhibited in various museums on that continent such as Austria, France, Spain, England and Germany”.

A man's fight to recover “the sacred crown”

Since 1993, Xokonoschtletl Gómora, traditional dancer and indigenous culture activist, embarked on a mission that has turned out to be impossible: secure the return of Moctezuma's Headdress to Mexico.
