Description:This is a session with three audio-video recordings of narratives about the cocoa and the products Tuzantec people produce from it. Julio López Pérez tells us about what they do with the cocoa since it is the main product that they harvest in Tuzantan. Jaime Pérez González asks Julio what the whole process is to harvest cocoa. From the planting until the end when the product is ready to sell or to derive something else. He tells us that someone brought it to Tuzantan, and since they saw it had good fruits, then they decided to plant it. The audio-recording MHC_TUZ_JLP_NARR_El_cacao_y_sus_derivados is a merging of three short files MHC_TUZ_JLP_NARR_El_cacao_y_sus_derivados-1, MHC_TUZ_JLP_NARR_El_cacao_y_sus_derivados-2, MHC_TUZ_JLP_NARR_El_cacao_y_sus_derivados-3. All three are transcribed. In the first two files Julio talks about the process of planting cocoa, how to take care of the plant, and he also says that Tuzantec people used to exchange cocoa for other kind of food, firewood, bread, they mostly did not sell cocoa for money. Now, people want to sell cocoa even if the price is low because they are ambitious, and they want to make money. Jaime asks how the harvest cocoa, and what the instruments are for doing this. At the end of the second recording Julio begins to talk about the beverages that Tuzantec used to prepare with the cocoa grains. He tells us the process of fermenting it, and producing an alcoholic traditional beverage that they use to drink to get drunk. He also says how to make other types of drinks, and chocolate. He also says that the cocoa is combined with other kind of drinks based on other ingredients.
A narrative about the cocoa and its derivatives.
