La magia tuxteca

by Germán Guido Münch Galindo

In the Tuxla region of Veracruz, Nahua supernatural culture mingles with aspects of western culture, mediated by a filter of Christian religion from the beginnings of missionization. The result is a system of magic that gives meaning to people's lives. The author, based on ethnographic work, unites the European antecedents of magic with contemporary practice in the Tuxtla region, contrasting the iniciate revelations of dreams with the more recent use of witchcraft as a tourist attraction. In Spanish.
