Abstract
Durante una temporada de sequía, se acompañó a pobladores de la comunidad de Los Metates, municipio de Azoyú, a realizar una ofrenda de agua al altar de su santo San Marcos, lugar que resultó ser un petrograbado olmeca en la cima de un cerro. Se aborda brevemente el caso de esta reutilización ritual por parte de los grupos afromexicanos, quienes han asimilado parte del sincretismo entre la religión mesoamericana y la católica.
During a dry season, residents of the community of Los Metates, municipality of Azoyú, were accompanied to make an offering of water to the altar of their Saint San Marcos, a place that turned out to be an Olmec petroglyph on the top of a hill. The case of this ritual reuse by Afro-Mexican groups, who have assimilated part of the syncretism between the Mesoamerican religion and the Catholic religion, is briefly addressed.
