Public Presentation during Amerind Autumn Fest

Far from Isolated: Resilience and Adaptation Among the Rarámuri in the 20th Century

José Miguel Chávez Leyva, Ph.D. student

October 28, 2017

Slide illustrated presentation at 10:30 am-11:30 am, repeated 1:00 pm-2:00 pm*

* Schedule subject to change

raramuri

The Rarámuri (Tarahumara) have traditionally been viewed as a group that retreated into the mountains and canyons of Chihuahua, fighting outside influence with isolation. This ignores the ways that the Rarámuri have responded to the multiple intrusions to their territory over the course of the 20th century. From fighting in the Mexican Revolution to working as railroad laborers, the Rarámuri have never shied away from participating in a society that has branded them as primitive. This lecture will explore some of the rich tapestry of Rarámuri history, looking at ways in which they have actively worked to preserve their way of life from the turn of the century through the 1970s.  

José Miguel Chávez Leyva is a Ph.D. student in Borderlands History at the University of Texas at El Paso. His research is centered on the ethnohistory of the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts, and how Indigenous peoples in this region have maintained their identities despite outside pressures from the colonial era to modern times.
