In Nahá, a village located in the forest of Chiapas in Mexico, the
development of local tourism is promoted among the 200
Maya-Lacandóns. A government representative invites the women
of the community to a workshop demonstrating the importance of
their culture and traditions for developing ethnic tourism. But as the
government’s vision is explained, we realize that the young women
find themselves in an ambiguous situation, caught between tradition
and modernity. The future of tourism in the community ostensibly
rests on the choices they will make. The presence of the three
directors – also tourists – offers a counterpart to the institutional
discourse by drawing attention to their relationship
with their hostesses.
