Nice additions! Interesting to see what appear to be European swords being wielded by the indigenous allied warriors.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

They are European swords. 

Right, I assumed so. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to see that... after all, invaders tend to provide weapons to their newfound allies to help take out their neighbors. I just don't remember ever seeing that type of thing in illustrations from this period.

Post Conquest the Spanish legislated making it illegal for natives to own a Spanish sword.  I've often wondered if this meant the surviving allies had to hand theirs in.

The first sword and shields appear very early.
During the Tenochtitlan siege , some very great warlord have a sword, a gift from the spaniard.
Then after the conquest, the gouvernor of régions or lords with power ower a région have a sword, given by the spaniards, to prove to the rest of the people that they are the doors words of the spanish autority

A simple Tlaxcalan warrior.
But no feather on the head.
The Lienzo shows with or without feather for simple warrior.

Another Tlaxcalan Lord, no a Tlaxcalan Prince or Tlatoani!

The outfit is the same as that of an Aztec Tlatoani.
