A central aspect in the analysis of the migrant indigenous groups to the cities is the constant social interaction and the diversity of actors with whom they interact. In this case I will make emphasis in the social representations made by some urban subjects towards the domestic indigenous migrant groups in Mexico City; the interest is to recognize the manner of how they are indentified and how this have influence in the type of interaction established with them. The subjects in our case are service providers of governmental institutions, ngo or neighbors that interact with these triquis families because of their labor activity or for neighborhood. The social representations referred by them are about the health necessities of these families, their demand of attention, the problems of accessibility and the use of the services, as well as the representations of the health personal's practice in the application of some institutional programs with the triquis, mainly related to their reproductive process, the upbringing and the childhood diseases among others. Due to, it is how they are identified that concrete actions are generated and in several occasions a bad treatment. The indigenous families of which we are talking are triquis, native of the Mixteca in Oaxaca, who have migrated to Mexico City approximately 15 years ago and belonging to different generations. It is important for our case to make evident the presence of discrimination as a result of the interaction and how it influence in the complex process of cultural continuity/discontinuity in where these urban indigenous groups are inserted.
