Yalaltecos in Los Angeles[eedit | eedit soorce]

Lourdes Gutiérrez Nájera uisses Zapotecs frae Yalálag as an example o migrants who oreeginate frae Oaxaca, México an shape their awn spaces o belangin in the Unitit States, specifically in Los Angeles. The commonty o Yalaltecos in Los Angeles comes thegither collectively an pairticipates in festivals, ceremonies, tandas an ither smaw gatherins whaur they can gossip in Yalálag Zapotec, share fuid, dance, financially an emotionally support ane anither, an engage in ither customs an tradeetions frae the smaw landwart toun which is their place o oreegin. The existence an practice o customs an tradeetions that wur ance thocht tae be exclusive to Yalálag, but that hae nou permeatit American society, demonstrates the transnaitional character o Yalaltecos indigeneity that maks possible the process o Hayandose throu the seizur an declaration o these ethnically-markit spaces.[4] Yalaltecos livin in Los Angeles hae invokit their cultural identity hunders o miles frae hame an hae uised it as a tuil tae resist the push for assimilation an marginalization athin the Unitit States. Tharefore, the transmission an continuity o cultur athort naitional borders are essential for Yalaltecos tae mark their awn space an ultimately fynd thairsels in a hostile environs far frae their hame kintra. Wi this new-foond sense of belangin, the opportunity for “rally[in] for indigenous richts an the development o hametoun commonties in Oaxaca, as well as tae organize in the Unitit States aroond immigrant legislation” nae langer remains oot o reach.[4][5]
