POMBOZA TAMAQUIZA, Pedro Pablo; NAVARRO GARZA, Hermilio; PEREZ OLVERA, Ma. Antonia  y  FLORES SANCHEZ, Diego. Mixtec organizational practices associated with food security and its heritage. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.spe18, pp.3697-3710. ISSN 2007-0934.

The changes introduced by modernization and globalization in traditional societies have altered sociotechnical practices and ways of living in community. However, some rural societies have resisted under different modalities in the face of modernizing processes and changes in the environment, considering that they value and conserve their cultural and organizational expressions that allow them to survive. Some of the main sociotechnical practices, such as heritage inheritance related to food safety, found in field work during 2011-2012 and its benefits are highlighted. It is concluded that several practices are still rooted in the culture and identity of the Mixteca Alta of Oaxaca, such as: cooperative work (gueza-work), food loaning (gueza-food), barter, traditional agriculture, and harvesting of wild plants. The widespread permanence between communities and families of diverse socio-technical practices are conformed as local strategies that strengthen food security, which need to be respected, promoted and rescued by programs and institutions of different government levels.

Palabras llave : social organization; socio-technical practices; reproductive strategies.
