MEXICO CITY.- Negotiations conducted for 3 years by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) before the Austrian Government, are about to reach a historical agreement that would bring Moctezuma´s Headdress to Mexican territory.

Friendly relations sustained between the Mexican and Austrian Governments would achieve a good-will exchange that would crystallize the dream of millions of Mexicans of admiring the feather headdress attributed to the last Mexica tlatoani (ruler).

This is an unprecedented collaboration project between museums headed towards a better understanding of the headdress, which efforts have been intensified during the administration of President Felipe Calderon.
