Questioning the Self-Sufficient Agrarian Peasant Indigenous Community

A project by Ismael Vaccaro

The project Questioning the self-sufficient agrarian peasant indigenous community: money, migration and food dependence in Oaxaca, Mexico attempts to understand the social and ecological consequences of the connection of small mountain Zapotec villages in Oaxaca, Mexico to large transnational flows of people (massive migration to the US), money (remittances sent back to the villages), commodities (cheap produces can be now bought at the community), and ideas (new consumptive trends). Fields abandonment, new market oriented agricultural strategies, diabetes, and forest transition are some of these new trends.
