COPORO QUINTANA, Gonzalo  y  VILLAFUERTE SOLIS, Daniel. Chamula: a migrant town in Los Altos, Chiapas. Migr. desarro [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.29, pp.97-121. ISSN 1870-7599.

This article analyzes international migration in Chamula, an indigenous municipality of Los Altos, Chiapas, where the material conditions of life for its people and its particular history have led to a search for alternative strategies for survival, first as laborers in the coffee plantations of Soconusco and settlers in various parts of Chiapan territory, and later in the urban areas of the southern states of Mexico, the Federal District and the State of Mexico, and in recent years in the Northern Mexican states and to the United States. The aim of this work is to show that the migration of the Chamula population is indicative of a change in the international migration tendencies in Mexico, where the entrenchment of the neoliberal economic model is leading the poorest sectors of Mexican society to be displaced beyond national borders.

Palabras llave : Indigenous migration; international migration; poverty; social exclusion and development.
