"Le Mexique, réputé pour son tourisme balnéaire et archéologique, fait partie des dix destinations touristiques les plus importantes au monde. Dans cet extraordinaire pays, il est un État surprenant appelé "Tabasco". Celui-ci fait partie du "Monde Maya" et possède un grand potentiel naturel et culturel. favorable au développement économique. Pourtant il attire moins de touristes que le Cliiapas ou le Yucatàn. La forte concurrence de sites mondialement connus se trouvant dans la région en est, certes, la raison principale. Mais le fait d'obtenir un moindre bénéfice des retombées du tourisme en termes .de recettes conduit à s'interroger sur les ressorts de la dynamique sectorielle et sur son implication réelle pour la croissance globale du Tabasco. Dans cette étude, Andrés Guzmâni-Sala, après avoir analysé dans quelle mesure l'offre touristique actuelle est capable de faire face à la demande touristique, propose une série de stratégies visant à augmenter la demande touristique et pointe les mesures nécessaires pour développer l'attractivité touristique du Tabasco."--Page 4 of cover.

Embodying Mexico examines two performative icons of Mexicanness-the Dance of the Old Men and Night of the Dead of Lake Patzcuaro-in numerous manifestations, including film, theater, tourist guides, advertisements, and souvenirs. Covering a ninety-year period from the postrevolutionary era to the present day, Hellier-Tinoco's analysis is thoroughly grounded in Mexican politics and history, and simultaneously incorporates choreographic, musicological, and dramaturgical analysis. Exploring multiple contexts in Mexico, the USA, and Europe, Embodying Mexico expands and enriches our understanding of complex processes of creating national icons, performance repertoires, and tourist attractions, drawing on wide-ranging ethnographic, archival, and participatory experience. An extensive companion website illustrates the author's arguments through audio and video.

'It is hard for me to praise this book sufficiently...It is a major contribution to the field of Oaxacan/Mexican studies, as well as economic anthropology and the study of tourism and crafts' - Arthur Murphy, Georgia State University, coauthor of "Social Inequality in Oaxaca: A History of Resistance and Change". Since the mid-1980s, whimsical, brightly colored wood carvings from the Mexican state of Oaxaca have found their way into gift shops and private homes across the United States and Europe, as Western consumers seek to connect with the authenticity and tradition represented by indigenous folk arts. Ironically, however, the Oaxacan wood carvings are not a traditional folk art. Invented in the mid-twentieth century by non-Indian Mexican artisans for the tourist market, their appeal flows as much from intercultural miscommunication as from their intrinsic artistic merit.In this beautifully illustrated book, Michael Chibnik offers the first in-depth look at the international trade in Oaxacan wood carvings, including their history, production, marketing, and cultural representations. Drawing on interviews he conducted in the carving communities and among wholesalers, retailers, and consumers, he follows the entire production and consumption cycle, from the harvesting of copal wood to the final purchase of the finished piece. Along the way, he describes how and why this 'invented tradition' has been promoted as a 'Zapotec Indian' craft and explores its similarities with other local crafts with longer histories. He also fully discusses the effects on local communities of participating in the global market, concluding that the trade in Oaxacan wood carvings is an almost paradigmatic case study of globalization.

How can we effectively interpret and present one culture to another without stereotypes or over-simplifications? What is the best way to present an authoritative version of a national heritage without also endangering ancient sites or being insensitive to the local customs, beliefs, and religious practices of the indigenous peoples?This volume addresses the ongoing thrust in archaeology to take the next step after preserving the past: Interpreting that past for the future. That future audience includes both local citizens and tourists who may have little background in archaeology, anthropology, or the history of the culture featured. Walker presents the key components of the anthropological study of tourism as a global phenomenon, with particular emphasis on the more prominent arguments for how and why tourism is a universal and meaningful human activity. The highly controversial topic of authenticity is examined, with special attention given to how 'authentic' has been defined and how it relates to the ways in which archaeological sites, artifacts, and cultural traditions are presented - or not presented - to the visiting public.The ephemeral promise of 'authenticity' drives the heritage tourism industry, which is a key consideration for the long-term economy of the Maya Riviera and elsewhere. Through analysis of seven archaeological sites on the Yucatan peninsula that are open to heritage touring, Walker reveals the planned growth of the Maya Riviera since the early 1970s and examines the impact of international tourism on both ancient structures and the contemporary Maya people and culture.

The daily Native American art market at the Palace of the Governors is Santa Fe, New Mexico's most popular tourist attraction. Known as the Portal Program for its location under the front portal, or porch, of the Palace, the program is descended from informal markets held in the same location since the mid-nineteenth century. Officially recognised as an educational program by the Museum of New Mexico, the Portal is reserved for Native artists who display and sell work they and members of their families have made. It is more than just a good place to sell authentic indigenous art. The Portal is a Native American-controlled workplace that supports hundreds of families throughout New Mexico. As a museum program, it is an instructive example of how Native people and state institutions can work together to promote understanding and to support indigenous cultures. The Portal is also a place of dynamic interaction among a diverse group of Native American artists and visitors from around the world. Karl Hoerig has worked collaboratively with the program's participants since 1995. Utilising extensive interview extracts, this history and ethnography explores the Portal from the inside out.
