MAYA, Vianney. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE AGRICULTURAL RITUALS OF CENTRAL AMERICA: THE SANTA CRUZ AND SAN ISIDRO LABRADOR CELEBRATIONSIN TWO MAZAHUA TOWNSHIPS IN MEXICO. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.131-136. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100015.
According to documentaries and arqueological-astonomical resources, it is known that the festivities associated with the changes in seasonal agricultural cycles are recognized as the most important in Mesoamerica due to the fact that these mark the end of the dry season and the start of the rainy season from the beginning of the prehispanic period. In this article , by way of the current analysis of ethnography in the Santa Cruz and San Isidro Labrador celebrations in Mazahua communities in Ixtlahuaca and San Felipe del Progreso in Mexico, the survival of the agricultural rituals are demonstrated as evidence and as an identifier of syncretism.
