The purpose of this paper is to analyze the Chocholteco settlement that has been developed in the San Miguel Teotongo colony, Iztapalapa, since 1970 to our days. The Chocholtecos, coming from the Mixteca Alta in Oaxaca and specifically from the village of Teotongo, resettled in the periferic village of San Miguel Teotongo, becoming their first inhabitants and establishing an ethnic enclave. Holding their (horizontal and vertical) ethnic network and integrating themselves into the contemporary Mexican society, the Chocholtecos immigrants have struggled for their right to the city. They have also adapted to the world economy "thirderisization" ("terciarización") creating stores in their own homes, shifting from an employed to a self-employed status.
