Cave Paintings From the Sixteenth Century: Representations of Contact Period in the Town of Atzala, North of Guerrero
Author(s): Lorena Medina Martínez
This is an abstract from the session entitled "Paper / Report Submission (General Sessions)" , at the 2022 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Rock paintings have been an important way of representing beliefs, religious, social and political aspects of communities. In the sixteenth century, after the arrival of Europeans to Mesoamerica, a series of cultural integrations took place, in which beliefs and social aspects of Indigenous people and Europeans merged. I will present an analysis of the rock paintings in Atzala, in which, during the contact period, Indigenous and European elements came together in the nascent viceroyalty of New Spain.
