RH was born in Santa Catarina La Chatao, a pueblo in Oaxaca, Mexico. All of the proverbs that she knows she learned from her mother who learned them from her mother and so on. Proverbs[Dichos] are a more subtle way of communicating in Mexican culture, and are ways of having entire conversations with only one sentence. Most dichos speak of faults that can be found in human nature and how that can lead to fall out among kin and kith groups.
Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres.
Tell me with who you interact with an I will tell you who you are.
This proverb is about being careful of who you befriend. It is mostly used for people who are searching for an identity among the wrong people and do not seem to realize that they are making the wrong choices.
