Aztec Prophecy Regarding Cortes

    Good morning,

    In my service as a K-12 educator, I have been challenged to either defend or refute the idea of a "self-fulfilling" prophecy regarding a "white-skinned God" coming from the east to either conquer or save the Aztec empire.  Can anyone help shed light on this topic?  Are there any reliable primary or secondary sources available on the topic?

    Thank you in advance.
