Return to the Global Gourmet Main Page electronic Gourmet Guide, Inc. MEXICO Spice Blends A Culture One of the best ways to learn about a culture is by examining the way its people eat. How do they see food? What role does it play? What techniques have they developed for creating meals using their indigenous foods? Cookbooks are like snapshots of a people. This book in particular, La Parilla , captures the Mexican culture by examining the mainstay of their kitchens, the simple grill. Grilling in Mexico is an integral part of the lifestyle. Author Reed Hearon masterfully details the ingredients used ingredients not found in other countries or at least not in the same combination. He notes the use of "recados" spice blends that mimic in function but not in taste the garam masalas of India, or France's herbs de Provence. What a country does with its native fruits and vegetables also paints a picture of the resources, terrain and climate. In Mexico, the heat of the chiles causes sweat, making us cooler, while banana leaves act as both cooking vessels and flavoring agents. Take a trip beyond the tacky border towns, past the cantinas, and go deep into the interior of Mexico. You'll be treated to Charred Habanero Salsa, Red Snapper, Duck and Pomegranite Tacos, and other everyday foods bursting with flavor from

46. Culture
mexico, culture, Back to Top. mexico’s blend of indigenous and Europeaninfluences has affected many of its traditions and much of its culture.
Country Info Mexico Introduction Mexico General Data Mexico Maps Mexico Culture ... Mexico Time and Date Mexico Culture Back to Top Because of its ethnic and regional diversity, as well as the socioeconomic divisions within the population, Mexico is culturally heterogeneous. Among rural peoples there are strong regional affinities and allegiances, often referred to as patria chica (“small homeland”), which help to perpetuate cultural diversity. The large number of Indian languages and customs still extant, especially in the south, also accentuate cultural differences. In an attempt to unite the nation culturally by identifying a uniquely Mexican culture, the government has supported indigenous folk arts and crafts as well as the European-inspired classical arts. Since the 1930s, indigenismo, or pride in the Indian heritage, has been a major unifying theme of the country. Mexico has a rich heritage in art and architecture and is recognized internationally for the contributions of its 20th-century mural artists, who created murals that reflected not only Mexico’s history and culture, but also its current social issues. Mexico’s blend of indigenous and European influences has affected many of its traditions and much of its culture. This ethnic heritage has contributed to the development of notable musical styles, folk art, and cuisine, all of which are also now found throughout the United States. The country's best-known writers have gained their reputations by dealing with questions of universal significance, as did Samuel Ramos, whose philosophical speculations on man and culture in Mexico influenced post-1945 writers in several genres. The prolific critic and cultural analyst Octavio Paz is considered by many to be the foremost poet of Latin America. The novels of Carlos Fuentes are honoured throughout the world, Gustavo Sainz is a leader in Spanish-language literature, and Juan José Arreola's fantasies are widely admired. Among dramatists, Rodolfo Usigli has been extremely influential, and Luisa Josefina Hernández and Emilio Carballido have made important contributions.

  • 48. Tarahumara
    A culture summary of a people who inhabit the Sierra Madre Mountains of the State of Chihuahua in Northwest mexico.
    Society-TARAHUMARA The Tarahumara Indians inhabit the Sierra Madre Mountains of the State of Chihuahua in Northwest Mexico. Their territory centers in the upper Rio Urique drainage, and covers approximately 5,000 square miles. Modern population estimates range between 40,000-50,000. The Tarahumara language is classified as Uto-Aztecan and seems to be most closely related to Pima-Papago, Mayo, Huichol, and Yaqui. Fried (1952: 1) divides the Tarahumara into three categories, on the basis of geographical and historical factors: (1) Christianized mountain (high sierra) dwellers (2) Christianized canyon (barranca) or lowland dwellers, who vary in material culture from the former and who have been usually subjected to greater Mexican influence, and (3) gentiles, those who have resisted Christian (Mexican) influence. Most of the gentile communities are located in the high sierra. Bennett and Zingg (1935:ix) add as a fourth category a Christianized sierra region, displaying special cultural traits. Although the majority of the Tarahumara have been Christianized to some degree, they have also tended to be a highly conservative people. In fact, Champion (1970: 429) claims "There have been no significant or basic changes in the culture of the Tarahumara since at least 1700." Perhaps this is an overstatement, but the general pattern of conservatism is supported by Kennedy (1963: 639), who says of his field data: "There is an amazing correspondence . . . between what Lumholtz found in 1896 and what I found in 1960." A key aspect of this conservatism may be language, since most Tarahumara evidently still do not speak Spanish. The Tarahumara are basically an agricultural people and till their lands either by slash-and-burn techniques or with the use of ox-driven plows. Maize is the most important crop, followed by beans and squash. Other fruits and vegetables are cultivated or collected but are of only minor significance when compared to maize. Domestic animals include cattle, sheep, and goats. These animals are not eaten. What little animal food the Tarahumara consume is obtained through occasional hunting and fishing. Although the division of labor is somewhat flexible, men tend to do the hunting, fishing, agricultural tasks and woodworking, while women are in charge of domestic tasks including weaving, and pottery making. The nuclear family is both the basic household unit and the primary unit of economic cooperation. Actual household composition varies as assorted kin often move in to take up temporary residence. After marriage, a Tarahumara couple tends to reside with the bride's parents for a few years before setting up a separate household. Bilateral marriage restrictions prohibit marriage between collateral kin of the first degree of relationship as well as between lineal relatives. Few marry non-Tarahumara. Sororate and levirate arrangements are reported, but these are preferential rather than prescriptive patterns. Polygyny is practiced. Divorce is frequent and involves little formality. While the bilateral kin group is important in mutual aid, the Tarahumara are not organized into formal kin groups above the family level. The settlement pattern is characterized by dispersed households grouped into ranchos, with each rancho averaging from two to five households (although the actual range is from one to twenty households). The widely dispersed ranchos (from one to five miles apart across mountains and canyons) are grouped in turn into geographical and political units called pueblos. The pueblos, which average about fifteen miles in radius, are the basic territorial units in the society. Kennedy says that the pueblo is the largest entity to which the Tarahumara feel any allegiance. There are no social mechanisms integrating the Tarahumara as a whole. Each pueblo contains a center, composed of a church and, usually, a comunidad, or combined courthouse and jail. Large-scale religious ceremonies are held in the center. Tarahumara men elect a number of officials, the most important of whom are the gobernador and mayor, to handle the political, legal, and ceremonial affairs of the pueblo. These offices are of indeterminate length, depending on the abilities of the men filling them. The Tarahumara religious system is a blend of Catholicism and indigenous beliefs. Fried (1952:120) divides religious practices into two spheres: (1) the large-scale pueblo ceremonies run by pueblo officials and highly influenced by Catholicism, and (2) rancho ceremonies, in which the shaman is the key figure. The status of shaman is reached through apprenticeship, and these men and women are both feared and respected for their powers of divination, curing, and sorcery. Culture summary by Robert O.

    Native Americans
    Western New Mexico has a history rich with Native American culture. During the 12th century, the Anasazi Indians (or "Ancient Ones") established an advanced civilization near Chaco Canyon. With more than 5,000 inhabitants, this site included 40 underground ceremonial kivas and communal living quarters with more than 600 rooms. Then, the Anasazi suddenly disappeared. The mystery has never been solved, but scientists trace the roots of today's pueblo Indians to these ancient Anasazi people. Pueblos
    The word "pueblo" refers to an Indian culture that is unique to the Southwest, and not to a particular tribe. New Mexico is home to 19 pueblos, two of which are located near Grants. Though they share many common elements, each pueblo has an independent government, and its own social order and religious practices. The pueblos are further distinguished by their art, jewelry, pottery, drums, carvings and weavings. Indian Tourism
    Regional trade fairs, all-Indian rodeos, public dances and feast day celebrations provide perfect opportunities to visit pueblos. Some of western New Mexico's most beautiful landscape is found on Indian lands, and opportunities for unique outdoor recreational experiences abound.

    Culture and Business by John Fleming Many of us have had our lives enriched by the contact with another culture. Doing business between two countries can also be interesting and profitable. But there are times when misunderstandings can occur as a result of cultural differences. Here's an example Two businessmen were trying to put together a transaction. The Mexican-we’ll call him José-was to visit the office of the American, whom we’ll call Sam. Sam invited José to come between 4:00 and 5:00 on a certain day, expecting that they would talk for an hour, and then, if all went well, arrange to get together again. This was Sam’s usual way of operating. What José understood was that he was to arrive at any time between 4:00 and 5:00 and that the two of them would spend some time getting to know one another, perhaps going out for a drink and maybe even having dinner together. That’s how it would have been done in Mexico, where the ending time of an appointment would not be specified. So José arrived at 4:45, ready for a leisurely conversation. Sam was annoyed because he had made another appointment for 5:00 and only had 15 minutes to talk to José. He felt that José was inexcusably rude to have arrived so late.
