Who s Who in Amopan Section 2 Questions from Census Practical Matters 1 I interviewed people who live in Amopan and their families to construct the census and the map The information includes the name of the residents their relationships age gender marital status occupation language spoken and other relatives situations 2 Other relatives living in the household includes sons in law daughters in law grandchildren brother in law and nephew The reason why they are there is because as residents live in the Amopan they would have the generations of offspring and thus their family expanded to the grandchildren generations another reason for that is because some of the resident s relative deceased and left behind their little kids alone so the residents raised them for their passed away relatives 3 Teodora Curandero is a very kind person and people oriented When I met her she immediately welcomed It showed her hospitable personality Later when I showed her my photo album of my family she expressed and felt sorry for me that my families couldn t come with me Juan Jefe is really helped me a lot When I asked him a lot of questions about the village he was very willing to help and answer my questions He is responsible and proud of his own village 4 A practical problem I encountered is that one of the villagers Samuel Pescadero had a very bad hearing and he only responded yes Later when I tried to find Eduardo Jefe s house I took the shortcut and hardly find my way I solved this problem by returning to the main path and found my way 5 When I entered Teodora s house they just spoke so fast So it was hard to catch up The way I solved the problem is that asking them to speak more slowly so I can understand 6 One ethical dilemma I encountered is that I figured out tomas Barros married Juanita who is a lot younger than him When I heard that I couldn t imagine However it is also their culture and it is not ompossible to do it Section 3 Questions from Census Personality and Demographic Issues 1 Juan Jefe put his hand on the heart whenever he talked about his eldest son Fransisco Also Juan considered Fransisco s wife Alicia When Juan talks aobut Miguel he didn t show any emotion and consider Miguel s wife as just an okay person I think the root of these different attitudes is the eldest son heredity system People would always see the eldest son more valued than the rest of the children and give most of the property to their eldest son 2 Tochtli is 51 years old This fact is important because it shows that she got a wedding in the church which reveals her richness 3 Coclitztil wouldn t want to talk to me because her husband died in a war with ranchers It would be cery hard time for her
