Anales de Tepoztlán

 

 

The princess (mother of el Tepozteco) bathing in Axitla

This page is dedicated to the testimonies, drawings, and worldview of Tepoztecan boys and girls.

Starting in 1998, several interviews were conducted with children in different schools to know what they thought about el Tepozteco and his legend. See my article, Yolanda Corona Caraveo: The Transmission and Reinterpretation of the Legend and Ritual of the Tepozteco among children in Tepoztlan, Morelos.

 

The children who participated were: 6th grade: Javier Ulises Herrera, Abigail Rivera González, Rodrigo Miranda, Fernando Ortiz Sánchez, Miguel Torres Conde, Jacqueline Gómez Mendoza, Salvador Labastida, Guadalupe Ríos, Laura Jocabed Chávez, María del Pilar Villamil, Areli Vargas, Myriam Ayala Flores.

5th grade: Israel Chávez Labastida, Rafael Polanco Martínez, Jonhatan Rodríguez Polanco, Julio César Gómez García, Edith Rojas Torres, Casandra Rosas Torres, Raquel Romero Arteaga, Elizabeth Medina Pulido.

Giovanni Polanco Demesa, Judith Rojas Torres, Abigaíl Bermudez Martínez, Aldo Rivera, Isabel Lara Balderrama, Isidro Torres, Pedro Jesús Polanco Martínez.

The questions answered by the children

WHO IS EL TEPOZTECO?

THE TEPOZTECO'S POWERS

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE EL TEPOZTECO?

 

WHAT DID EL TEPOZTECO DO?

The drawings are the result of the "My vacation in the library" workshop in which we suggested they work with the theme of the legend of el Tepozteco.
