EL MÉXICO DE LOS MEXICANOS

  1. Pintando al jaguar: Una artísta del Bodypaint, en los últimos detalles de un pequeño que quiere ser caballejo jaguar.
  2. Ríe: Lucha contra la tristeza 4/5
  3. Niños en la plaza de Zirahuén en un acto público los niños de las escuelas de Zirahuen rindo culto al ausente.
  4. La familia: Familia en su negocio en Texcoco, Estado de México
  5. Su familia su legado: Su esposa e hijos son tan buenos ceramistas como su maestro Don José.
  6. Debajo del Puente: Familia Tarahumara debajo de un puente de la ciudad de Chihuahua.
  7. Raulito: El pequeño Raulito a sus 3 años de edad a menudo columpiaba a su hermanita menor en la hamaca verde colgada sobre su cama. Así fue hasta que su mamá entró en coma por siete meses y luego falleció. La primera en ser regalada fue esa bebita, seguida por sus cuatro hermanos que también fueron obsequiados. Él le temía a todos. Llevaba semanas de no bañarse y de no dirigir palabras a nadie. Nos llevó meses de visitas llevando alimentos, ropa, juegos e historias, además de oraciones empeñadas, para lograr que se abriera de nuevo al riesgo de depositar su confianza en alguien más. En especial le agradaban los plátanos. Volvió a reír y a recibir cuidados cotidianos y ahora esta con una familia Nahuatl que le ama.
  8. Nuestra fé: Nuestras creencias, nuestras raíces…crecen conforme nosotros crecemos:niña sonriendo y orando a su creador.
  9. Campesino mexicano (Narciso): Crecí en el estado de Morelos y aquí es común ver estos personajes de “sombrero”, manos toscas y mirada noble. Por ello con esta fotografía rindo un tributo y doy gracias a todos esos campesinos que me enseñaron a amar la tierra, a respetar la naturaleza y a entender ese concepto llamado sencillez.
  10. Después de la escuela: Al salir de la escuela, el mejor lugar para pasar la tarde es el río.

OK, see these cool little guys? They came from Buff’s grandmother, were purchased somewhere in Mexico maybe in the 50’s or 60’s, and are most likely made of rainbow obsidian, which mostly seems to come from Guadalajara . There are carving workshops in Navajas today, but from the article linked above it sounds like they are doing different things than the subjects that were being carved in the 20th century. These guys might be Huichols or Nahuas gods/priests or figures from myths, but I have no idea. I don’t think they are Aztec or Maya gods unless they were carved specifically with tourists in mind. I’d really like to find the name of the town/s they were created in and the artists who carved them!

WOMEN’S HISTORYMALINALLI (c. 1496-1501 – c. 1529)

Malinalli (also known as "La Malinche" and "Malintzin"), was a Nahua woman and daughter of a cacique. Bernal Diaz claimed that she was sold into slavery by her mother and stepfather while Francisco López de Gómara claimed she was kidnapped by Maya merchants.

Nevertheless, both sources agree that in 1519, she was one of the slave girls given to the Spaniards by the Chontal Maya. Malinalli and the other girls were baptized (with Malinalli being christened “Doña Marina”) and becoming the property of Alonso Hernández de Puertocarrero. She later became Hernán Cortés’ interpreter and adviser and later bore him a son.

Very little else is known about the real Malinalli, but she has taken on mythic status and has been variously depicted as a virtuous lady, as a symbolic mother of a new people, as a traitor and a whore, and as both victim and survivor.
