Using ethnography techniques and interviews, Professor Carlos Buitrago Ortiz of the University of Puerto Rico, will explore the impact of internal migration from the Chiapas Highlands to the urban lowlands of San Cristobal de Las Casas on indigenous women. This is contrasted to previous migratory movements such as the Puerto Rican internal migration of the 1940s.
