ZAPOTEC INDIANS. JUCHITÁN. MEXICO

In Juchitán, in the south of Mexico, in the isthmus of Tehuantepec, trade and business are in the hands of women, Zapotec Indians, who control the economic life of the city. They have expensive handmade suits and golden jewellery which is passed on from mother to daughter. They are recognised throughout Mexico for their intelligence, bravery, skill and audacity. Here men are hardly noticed. However in Juchitán de Zaragoza a matriarchy and patriarchy live under the same roof.
