I carry out my research through of an ethnohistoric and anthropological approach. I study Nahua religion in several communities from my homeland in the Huasteca region, Veracruz, Mexico. I explore the components of Nahua religion of the past and present and I analyze the attitudes of native speakers about the value of their religion in front of Christianity.
