Abstract

This article is about the recollection of the main hydraulic technologies of Pre-Hispanic origins among the Mayan, making emphasis in the cultural aspects of construction and inside a particular cosmic vision. This paper underline the necessity of recapturing technologies of Pre-Hispanic origin for water management and its possible use and application in the present social and environmental context. Also, it suggests political guidelines for the use of the so-called "appropriate technologies", with the aim of developing indigenous communities’ general tendencies in Mexico.
