FERNANDEZ REPETTO, Francisco  and  MEDINA VARGUEZ, Alma Teresa. Wearing Yucatecan identity. Ethno-commodity, tradition and modernity. Entrediversidades rev. cienc. soc. humanid. [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.1, pp.241-275.  Epub June 30, 2021. ISSN 2007-7610.

In this article, first we stress how the regional dress constitutes one of the pillars of the Yucatecan identity, a minor identity, built upon the contrast and opposition to a major identity, the mexican one. In the second part we discuss the advantages and limitations of the terms handcraft and ethno-commodity to better characterize the Yucatecan regional dress. Finally, we propose that the different roles taken by the male and female versions of the regional dress constitute a direct reference respectively, to modernity and tradition.

Keywords : Yucatecan regional dress; minor identity; handcraft; ethno-commodity.
