Resumen

TELLEZ LOZANO, Víctor Manuel. AN APPROACH TO THE STUDY OF SOCIAL STRUCTURE AMONG THE HUICHOL PEOPLE OF JALISCO AND NAYARIT, MEXICO. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2014, n.43, pp.17-40. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812014000100003.

The bibliography dealing with analyses of cargo systems in different indigenous regions of Mexico is ample indeed. However, studies of the forms of government among the Huicholes have been constrained by an exotic vision of culture that tends to over-look the information generated during the Colonial period and the ethnographic contributions made since the late 19th century. Among the Huichol communities in the zone around the Chapalagana River, the civil-religious hierarchy instituted in Colonial times constitutes the foundations of a model of an egalitarian society. But, of course, this model was established on the base of an earlier political structure of a Mesoamerican character. In light of these antecedents, and based on the ethnographic information available, this study analyzes how institutions of pre-Hispanic and Colonial origin have managed to subsist up to the present, and the adaptations that have made their survival possible; at times through superimposition upon the institutions created by the Mexican State, at others through articulations with them.

Palabras clave : Cargo systems; political and ceremonial organization; Huichol indians.
