Abstract title

Protective practices against COVID-19 among Amuzgos Nancue Ñomndaa from Guerrero, Mexico. Discussions from resilience.

Abstract text

From several community workshops that were carried out in the Nancue Ñomndaa region of Amuzga, in the municipalities of Xochistlahuaca, Ometepec and Tlachoachistlahuaca in Guerrero, various problems that families faced in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic were highlighted, for What the analysis of how these aspects impacted on their lives, of how they faced the pandemic, as well as the description of practices described by families as protective of their health, is the central objective of this chapter. Derived from the work carried out in the workshops, as well as interviews with key actors in the Amuzga community, they allowed us to identify how the current pandemic has come to deconfigure the social and economic dynamics in the Nancue Ñomndaa Amuzgo region, and that reflected within family processes. It is in our interest to describe how the Amuzga families faced the pandemic with the support of protective practices, considering their belief system and worldviews that sustain them. In the discussion of this chapter, we rescued various problems that the Nancue Ñomndaa families faced, including both the community, economic and educational spheres as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
