Resumen

VELAZQUEZ GALINDO, Yuribia. THE EXCHANGE OF "HELP: ECONOMYAND SOCIAL ORGANIZATION AMONG THE NAHUAS OF SIERRA NORTE DE PUEBLA, MÉXICO. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2014, n.43, pp.41-50. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812014000100004.

This article, based on ethnographic data collected directly in the field-from 1993 to date, in populations of the municipalities of Naupan, Xicotepec, Huauchinango and Tlaola from the state of Puebla (Mexico), I present an approach to the forms basic organi-zation that govern social relations among the Nahua of the Sierra Norte de Puebla and I analyze the role of "help" (quipalehuiya) as a kind of gift that is exchanged in the framework of an economic system of reciprocity that has a different logic to that which has the prevailing capitalist model. Through my research, I found that the "pedir el favor" and receive the "ayuda" is not only the basic economic forms of Nahua model (Velázquez, 2013), but this system of exchange norm Nahua's social organization that links ethical guidelines that govern the collective life, social responsibility and self-worth of the participants.
