This book, Water in the Cosmovision of Indigenous Peoples in Mexico, is a photographic and documentary testimony of the relationship between this important sector of our society and the vital liquid; it is a recognition of their ancestral practices and techniques to rationally use and protect this essential resource. This work represents an important contribution to the diffusion of the different cultures of water in our country. With this, the deep roots of Mexicanness are also strengthened.
