About this product
- DescriptionEthnicity has long been a central concern of Mesoamerican ethgraphy, but for methodological reasons has received less attention in the archaeological, historical, and art historical literature. Using the disciplines of archaeology, art history, ethhistory, and ethgraphy, Ethnic Identity in Nahua Mesoamerica provides a unique interdisciplinary treatment of Nahua identity in central Mexico beginning with pre-Columbian times and proceeding through the Aztec empire, the colonial era, and the ethgraphic present. This book is the first to analyze ethnicity in a single place over a span that covers prehistory, colonial history, and contemporary life. The authors bring to their various case studies data, methodologies, and concepts of their respective fields to show how Nahuan concepts of ethnic identity are t based on the tion of shared descent but rather on conceptions of shared place of origin and common history.
