“La cañada Oaxaqueña” is a study on La Cañada, a little-known region in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, with a rich indigenous history. There are a large number of groups in Oaxaca that are all ethnically, culturally, politically, economically, and linguistically different, creating a complex dynamic that has not been fully studied. This interdisciplinary research project particularly examines sociocultural and territorial aspects of the Sierra Cuicateca. In this space, Mazatecs, Mixtecs and Cuicatecs have interacted since ancient times, and although they differ significantly in certain aspects, in others they have many similarities, mainly as a result of this long coexistence. The authors of this work use indigenous stories from people living in the Sierra Cuicateca to illustrate the complex, multi-ethnic dynamics of the region. In 2021, this work was awarded first place for the “500 Years: Conquest and Indigenous Resistance Award,” organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the National Institute of Historical Studies of the Revolutions of Mexico (INEHRM).
