About the Book

Folklore yields important information about society and culture, helping to propagate beliefs, morals, and values. The study of Mesoamerican folklore offers a unique opportunity for understanding the religious syncretism occurring when powerful groups colonize others. This work provides insight into a selected number of narratives, rituals, and artifacts originating from pre-Conquest, colonial, and revolutionary periods. The purpose is to disclose issues of militarism, religious syncretism, resistance, and gender relations in Mexican society.
