Abstract

Si bien los valores occidentales se han generalizado a escala mundial, muchas culturas, como la de los nahuas de México, han logrado mantenerse vivas gracias a la preservación de la lengua materna, ya que, como señala la autora de este volumen, en ella se elabora nuestro pensamiento. Para entender la cultura nahua y dilucidar de qué modo asimiló el pensamiento occidental cristiano, Sybille de Pury-Toumi realiza un estudio detallado del sistema léxico y etimológico de la lengua vernácula, así ...

Abstract

In the late colonial period, the rural area of Central Mexico was characterized by haciendas, by Spanish-mestic small towns and by indigenous communities, which were defined and composed ethnically according to Spanish law. This study uses microhistorical methods to study the city of Cholula and its rural environment. The focus is on economic processes within the municipalities and interethnic exchange relationships at the individual level. The focus of the study is on Indian households and their scope for economic action. The analysis of the distribution of land ownership in Cholula already shows a high proportion of land ownership in private property, a result that fundamentally contradicts the previous knowledge about the organization of indigenous communities. Their role as a reservoir of labour for the haciendas is well known. This study shows that individual households also produced and marketed significant quantities of different agricultural and industrial products. The proof of the manifold inter-ethnic exchange relationships calls into question the relevance of the traditional description categories "Indian" and "Spanish" for the rural areas of Central Mexico and points out numerous parallels to European agricultural societies of the 18th century.
