Tortillas for the gods : a symbolic analysis of Zinacanteco rituals by Evon Z Vogt( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 1993 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly 20 years, the author observed rituals in Zinacanteco society (Chiapas, Mexico). Those rituals organize life into a four stage cycle. Prestige (as determined by age and wealth) is also a factor. Specific rituals are only performed by higher-status individuals, such as elderly or wealthy men. Rituals are also often designed to alleviate the tensions between different classes as well as conflicting beliefs, such as tensions between Mayan and Christian traditions. Rituals dominate every aspect of the Zinacanteco society and are taken very seriously. Everything from the types of plants used in Rituals of Affliction (curing, medicinal rituals) to the color of the chickens that are sacrificed at the corners of a new house when it is built and dedicated are rigidly specified and controlled by tradition

Fieldwork among the Maya : reflections on the Harvard Chiapas Project by Evon Z Vogt( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fieldwork Among the Maya is a personal chronicle of the Harvard Chiapas Project, written by the man who initiated it in 1957 and guided it through thirty-five years of intensive ongoing research. Beginning with his childhood in New Mexico and insights into how and why he became an anthropologist, Vogt moves on to describe the major features of the Chiapas Project, which was a long-range ethnographic program to describe systematically, for the first time, and to analyze the Tzotzil-Maya cultures of the remote highlands of Chiapas. The goal was to understand how these contemporary Mayas are related to the prehistoric Classic Maya and how their cultures are changing as they confront the modern world. Maintaining a delicate balance between the technical and the personal, Vogt comments on changes in anthropological styles and methods, describes in vivid terms (often humorous, sometimes poignant) the day-to-day lives of the researchers and their informants, and depicts clearly the joys, the rewards, and the hazards encountered in the field by social anthropologists
