Change in Colotenango. Costume, Migration, and Hierarchy

Q55.00

For this volume, the team of investigators decided to focus on change in the dress and in the political-religious hierarchy. This idea arose at the beginning of the field investigation when the current political-religious organization of the community was compared with its description by León Valladares (1957) in 1953-1954. In addition, to explore the sources of variation in the dress, it became evident that seasonal migration is one of the phenomena that places the people of Colotenango in contact with Indians of other municipalities and therefore with other styles of dress, which inspires changes in their own. The three themes cited were studied synchronically in the present and diachronically since the end of the 19th century of the beginning of the 20th.
