Globalization processes have affected certain subaltern social groups, such as the indigenous Nauha communities of Guerrero state in Mexico. These types of economic insertion forcibly imply great labor mobility, flexibility, and deregulation in order to achieve productive incorporation into given labor markets. Indigenous groups are performing as a mobile workforce in order to survive and socially reproduce in hubs of capital flow and accumulation that posses specific forms of development and capital concentration. Their hypermobility, labor fluidity and multi-territoriality currently manifest within three specific networks: migrant agricultural labor, tourism, and international undocumented migration. These, in turn, combine to produce new migratory chains. This article explores the reasons why indigenous people, as a social sector, are so responsive to mobility demands-or, in any case, why it is they are so adaptable to itinerancy under the flexible accumulation regimes of current global markets.
