LIRA LARIOS, Regina. A Reading of Wixarika Territorial Defense Strategies from Ritual Complexity. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2018, vol.39, n.156, pp.123-144. ISSN 2448-7554.

Amid conflicts that affect their political and ceremonial territories, Wixarika representatives either ally themselves with governmental and non-governmental institutions and collectivities from civil society, or separate themselves from one or more of these groups. This article proposes thinking of this apparently contradictory or inconsistent modality as a series of political devices and instruments of analysis to reflect on relations with mestizo society that are learned and transmitted through ritual practice. This topic is analyzed in light of Wixarika communal organization, history and ritual.

Palabras llave : Huichols; ritual complexity; multiplicity; Mexican State; territory.
