La RIVIERA NAYARIT y su Punto Ciego.


NAYARIT no solo es turismo.















Historias no contadas.



El  09 de agosto, 2016, el diario THE NEW YORK TIMES (NYT) publicó una serie de imágenes en las que el fotógrafo mexicano César Rodríguez, originario de Tepic, documenta las condiciones en las que viven y trabajan los jornaleros huicholes que cultivan tabaco en el estado de NAYARIT.

En un portafolio publicado en su plataforma digital, el diario publicó más de 20 imágenes de trabajadores indígenas huicholes migrantes y de las condiciones en que laboran.

Así viven jornaleros que cultivan tabaco en la RIVIERA NAYARIT (1), la supuesta joya de la corona del turismo de la nación.

RIVIERA NAYARIT and its Blind Spot.

NAYARIT: Not everthing is tourism.

Stories untold.

















In NAYARIT also exist tobacco plantations where migrant workers of indigenous descent work in grueling, merciless conditions, exposed to the elements and pesticides. 

The members of the Huichol indigenous group, come from Nayarit, Jalisco and Durango states, fleeing crushing poverty that had left them surviving on subsistence farming. The tobacco season runs from January through June, with entire families taking to the fields.

They have no potable water or toilets. Their pay — per family, not worker — is so meager, that they forgo doctor visits rather than forgo a meal.

There is no protective gear, just the same clothes they wear so much that they just discard them at season’s end.

And when they get paid — about $35 a week for a family — they spent it on food, water and even fuel for the lamps that allow them to work through the night.
The scenes — of people living under thatched-roof shelters, their skin raw from chemicals, and children as young as 6 working the fields or bathing in irrigation canals — could have been taken a generation ago.
