(p.43) 2 Introduction to the Regional Ethnography of Morelos and the Huasteca
Exits from the Labyrinth

This chapter provides a description and an analysis of culture and cultural interaction in Morelos and the Huasteca. The regional ethnography of these two regions is specifically covered. It then explores some of the general features of Morelos and the Huasteca Potosina. Morelos and the Huasteca Potosina are chosen because of meaningful contrasts in their regional organizations. The Huastecan Revolution does not coincide with the official, or even the dominant academic, characterizations of the motives, leadership, and participants of the “Mexican” Revolution. The oblivion in which Huastecan culture and history has been thrust has its counterpoint in the inclusion of the region as part of the rich background, the reserve wealth, of the nation. Furthermore, the chapter elucidates the general understanding of the spaces for Morelos' regional identity and their relation to the construction of national identity.

Keywords:   regional ethnography, Morelos, Huasteca Potosina, Huastecan Revolution, Huastecan culture, regional identity, national identity
