64. Travel In Mexico City - Mexico - Culture -®-
mexico City culture. This is a must-see destination and would make an excellentfirst day tour to get yourself oriented with the culture of mexico.
Mexico City - Culture The city is rich in Aztec history. The Plaza de la Constitucion Overlooking the plaza from the north is the Metropolitan Cathedral, constructed from the 16th to the 19th centuries, utilizing architectural styles from each of three main designs during this period: gothic, baroque and neo-classical. The church has fourteen altars the most significant of which are the Altar de Pardon, and the Altar de los Reyes. Guides are available to show you the more interesting aspects of the church and provide historic facts regarding the altars and construction. From the outside, you will likely see ongoing work to correct structural flaws caused by the sinking of the building into the soft mud underneath. The most significant archaeological site within Mexico City is the Templo Mayor, just east of the cathedral. This was the main Aztec temple and gave Archaeologists a glimpse into the powerful and often cruel culture of the Aztecs. Artifacts unearthed at or around the site showed products from wide ranging cultures throughout what is now modern day Mexico, testament to the size of the empire the Aztecs established. Perhaps the most magnificent find is the stone of Coyolxauhqui, the dismembered goddess, sister of the war god Huitzilopochtli. Legend has it that Huitzilopochtli emerged from the womb armed and slew his sister because she was plotting against their mother, Coatlicue, and because she did not approve of human sacrifice. The stone itself is exquisitely carved and can be viewed in the museum from two levels.

Chichen Itza - Culture C hichen Itza is the most impressive and intact ruins of Mayan civilization that the modern world has. This now popular tourist attraction is located on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and has fast become the best restored record of the spiritual, domestic, and agricultural lives of these people. The Yucatan area has much more to offer than just a beach resort, it hosts some of the most spectacular of the Mayan archaeological sites, including the famous Chichen Itza . Chichen Itza has a mixture of Mayan and Aztec temples and the largest known 'Ball Court', a game for which the rules have been forgotten but carvings found on the side on the ball court indicate one of the players was beheaded at the end of the game. El Caracol is an astronomy-oriented structure. It is a giant observatory dome where many rituals and celebrations took place. The dome has many windows peppered throughout. Stars can be seen through different windows on specific dates. This structure is one of the pinnacles of Mayan architecture. Creating a stone dome is hard work, but creating it with windows at precise points takes an enormous amount of time and skill. El Caracol simultaneously displays the Mayans' expertise in both astronomy and engineering. This is one of the main attractions of Chichen Itza today.

78. Tzeltal
A ethnographic analysis of a Native American ethnic group concentrated in the central highlands of the State of Chiapas, mexico.
Society-TZELTAL The Tzeltal are a North American Indian ethnic group concentrated in the central highlands of the State of Chiapas, Mexico. Continguous Indian groups are the Tzotzil to the west, the Chol to the north and northeast, and the Tojolabal to the southeast. The basic population cleavage in the Chiapas highlands, however, is not between the various Indian groups, but rather between the Ladinos (Spanish-speaking, usually racially mixed people), who occupy primarily the major towns, and the Indians, who live primarily in outlying municipios. The Tzeltal and Tzotzil languages form the Tzeltalan subdivision of the Mayan language family. Lexico-statistical studies indicate that these two languages probably became differentiated around 1200 A.D. (Vogt 1969: 140). The Tzeltal-speaking population numbered approximately 50,000 around 1950. This population is distributed through 12 municipios, with 13 main communities. Of the latter, 9 are almost entirely Indian (i.e., reported to be over 85 percent Tzeltal-speaking): Aguacatenango, Amatenango, Cancuc, Chanal, Chilon, Oxchuc, Tenejapa, Petalcingo, and Sitala. The other 4 communities are about 65 to 80 percent Tzeltal-speaking: Altamirano, Ocosingo, Villa de las Rosas, and Yajalan (Villa Rojas 1969: 195-96; Vogt 1969: 139). Ecologically, the Tzeltal region can be divided into three zones: north, central, and south. Some demographic and cultural variations coordinate with these zones. More fundamentally, however, each Tzeltal community constitutes a distinct social and cultural unit. "Each community has its well-defined lands, its own dialect forms, wearing apparel, kinship system, politico-religious organization, economic resources, crafts, and other cultural features" (Villa Rojas 1969: 197). Strong intracommunity solidarity contrasts with the lack of any social or political solidarity at the ethnic group level. Agriculture is the basic economic activity of the Tzeltal peasants. Traditional Mesoamerican cropsmaize, beans, squash, and chilies, are the most important, but a variety of other crops, including wheat, manioc, sweet potatoes, cotton, chayote, and some fruits and vegetables, are also raised. Regional variations in ecological conditions lead to concomitant differentiation in agriculture. Domestic animals include poultry, pigs, burros, and cattle, but these animals are seldom eaten. Tzeltal villages are noted for craft specialties. Surplus produce and craft products are traded throughout the region by a system of regional periodic markets, and these markets link the Tzeltal to the wider Mexican economic system. Finally, many Tzeltal are dependent to some extent on wage labor in order to provision their households. All of the Tzeltal communities follow an essentially similar structural pattern, with a town center, which may be heavily or thinly populated, and a number of communities, called parajes, which are scattered over the municipio. The town is the political, religious, and commercial center of the entire community. The town centers are divided into two sections, called barrios or calpules, each with its own local authorities and sometimes its own patron saint. In addition to political and religious functions, each barrio traditionally was endogamous. Some of the other major aspects of traditional Tzeltal social organization that persist today in the more conservative communities are exogamous patrilineal sibs, patrilineal lineages within which land is inherited, and an Omaha type of kinship terminology. In the more acculturated communities, the sib-lineage system tends to disappear and to be replaced by a bilateral system similar to that characterizing Ladino society. Although there are some extended families, the nuclear family is the basic pattern. The Tzeltal religious system is a syncretic blend of Catholic and indigenous elements. Annual community ceremonies are held in honor of particular saints. As in most Mesoamerican Indian communities, office holders in the civil-religious hierarchy are in charge of these celebrations as well as more secular village affairs. Shamanism and witchcraft are also found among the Tzeltal. Villa Rojas (1969) contains an excellent general summary of Tzeltal ethnography and culture history, which provides a very useful starting point for the study of Tzeltal culture.
