DescriptionThis collection currently houses transcriptions of 96 stories recorded in 1975 or 1978 in the Nahuat language of Huitzilan de Serdán, a community in Puebla, Mexico. These transcriptions were made in Microsoft Word (DOC) are were converted to PDF and TXT formats for preservation. They contain Nahuat transcriptions along with notes and titles in Spanish and English. Some of these texts were previously published in Taggart's The Rain Gods' Rebellion: The Cultural Basis of a Nahua Insurgency, a copy of which is available in this collection here:
