CASTILLO, Guillermo. Ethnic migration and social change among the Odhams Altar Desert, Northwest Sonora. Andamios [online]. 2012, vol.9, n.18, pp.375-409. ISSN 2594-1917.

This text deals, mainly through the oral testimonies, the process of historical change and geographical displacement of the Odhams community of las Calenturas-Pozo Prieto to the city of Caborca in the Northwest of Mexico in the second half of the XX century. The State with its agrarian and the selective use of the natural resources policies played a determining role in this process, particularly in damage of the Odhams. This work describes the geographical mobility from the origin place in a rural environment to the urban center of destination. Besides, this text treats briefly the Odham perception about this dynamic of social change that leads them to reconfigure as ethnic group in a different cultural and social environment, the city.

Keywords : Collective memory; community; Odham; migration; state policies.
