Book Reviews: "Fariseos y Matachines en la Sierra Tarahumara: Entre la Pasión de Cristo, la Transgresión cómico-sexual y las Danzas de Conquista," by Carlo Bonfiglioli Journal Article uri icon



  • Comments on the conceptual synthesis of discussions on the symbolism of danza in seminars coordinated over the past ten years (Instituto Nacional Indigenista, 1995, 240p). Explains that the book is divided into three sections which define dance ethnology, provide detailed ethnographies of two of the five danzas of the Tarahumara's yearly ritual cycle, and propose the theory that the complex system of paradigmatic transformations that operates among the Tarahumara operates in a similar fashion in other danza contexts of Mexico and the Southwestern United States.
