DescriptionThe first Tzotzil recording was made in 1964 and the last in 1972. From 1964 through 1969, my research focused on humor in Zinacantan, with the assistance of an NIMH Predoctoral Fellowship (MH-20,345), the Harvard Chiapas Project, directed by Evon Z. Vogt, and a grant from the Harvard Graduate Society. The collection includes (1) elicited humorous narratives, songs, and prayers; (2) "live" recordings of ritual humor at the fiestas of Saint Lawrence, Christmas, New Year's Day, Epiphany, and Saint Sebastian; and (3) didactic materials (lessons, texts, and exercises).

In 1971, I initiated a comparative study of oral and written accounts of Maya revitalization movements, which necessitated expansion of the geographical coverage to Chamula and Chenalho in highland Chiapas and to the Yucatan peninsula in the lowlands. This research was supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research (Grant No. 2807) and the Tulane University Council on Research in 1971 and the Foreign Area Fellowship Program of the Social Science Research Council in 1972. The Yucatecan recordings include (1) histories of the Caste War of Yucatan of 1847-1901 and local manifestations of the Mexican Revolution of 1917-1921; (2) legends; (3) astronomical lore; (4) medical lore; (5) autobiographies; (6) conversations; (7) and songs (both traditional and original) from a number of different towns in the peninsula.

The collection also includes one Chol narrative from Tila, Chiapas, and four descriptions of fiestas in Huazalinguillo Nahuatl.

Resource YUA003R001 contains a one-page file listing the names of all the speakers who participated in the creation of this collection. This file is included for historical completeness, but it will be restricted for many years to come.

Funds for archiving this collection at AILLA were provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
