MAZAHUA FAMILIES FROM SAN ANTONIO PUEBLO NUEVO, SAN JOSÉ DEL RINCÓN MUNICIPALITY, STATE OF MÉXICO, MÉXICO

Abstrac


The concept of traditional family is insufficient to account for the specific dynamics of families in rural areas, and specifically for indigenous domestic groups. However, based on a research work on identity and cultural changes in the community of San Antonio Pueblo Nuevo, in this article we present a general view of the domestic unit and family relations that are generated inside them as a result of high temporary and definitive migration that distinguishes the inhabitants of this region. We are based on some statistical data about the homes with female heads of households and in the information obtained in the community through a questionnaire and some interviews carried out in situ to describe the role of women in this situation.
