GONZALEZ VILLARRUEL, Alejandro  and  GABAYET GONZALEZ, Natalia. The cultural landscape of the pai pai, kiliwa and cucapá. Yumano ceremonial sites. Cuicuilco. Rev. cienc. antropol. [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.74, pp.183-208. ISSN 2448-8488.

This article seeks to define what is considered as the cultural landscape of the groups that anthropology has denominated yumanos, and who effectively share parental ties through their alliance, thus encouraging shared experiences in a given geographical zone. It is through mythology, the world of the dead, the regions they inhabit and their harvesting festivals that the basis for the description of the territory is symbolized forever through the senses expressed by the cucapá, pai pai and kiliwa, the native peoples of the northern corner of Mexico, in the State of Baja California.

Keywords : Cultural landscape; yumanos; Baja California.
