QUEZADA RAMIREZ, María Félix. International migration and local development: two Otomi towns’ experience in the Mezquital Valley, Hidalgo, Mexico. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.73, 0010. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article studies the tourism projects of two Otomi towns in the Mezquital Valley, Hidalgo, and which are located in indigenous municipalities with a high and very high degree of migration intensity, in order to examine migrants’ participation in them. Empirical evidence shows that project implementation was possible thanks to the usufruct of thermal water and the historical forms of community organization. Participation of migrants depends on their citizenship status, which is their main link with the community. Therefore, their contribution was independent of institutional arrangements, such as the 3x1 Program for Migrants. Fieldwork was carried out between 2011 and 2013, and document review, interviews and observation were conducted.

Palavras-chave : migration; development; Otomi people; indigenous community; community citizenship.
