This article thinks on the forms of control, authority and power exertion that the nha-nhú or otomíes have built to lighten or overcome the Federal Mexican justice system deficiencies. Supported by an approach centered on the plaintiff, the author shows the justice indigenous system strength and working through a car accident in the otomí region of Valle del Mezquital, Hidalgo (México). The case confirms the functioning of some hybrid justice systems, not antagonistic, and adapted to the local and regional political culture.
