Mythology and the language itself contributed elements to demonstrate the otomíes are guided by a trinity notion which is present within their universe; it is a new way to approach the indigenous world (above all the otomí tribes) in a scientific manner. This work has the intention of presenting new elements of understanding the vision of the otomí world; the reflections are based on camp dates and specialists, who have written about this. The mythology and the language show elements to conclude that otomíes are guided by a trinity notion present in their whole world; this is a new way of approaching the scientific work to the indigenous world (in particular, the otomí world).
