"Constelaciones Narrativas de Discriminación y Resistencia" addresses the life experience of young descendants of agricultural workers in migratory regions of the San Quintín Valley, BC and Madera and Fresno, in California, with a presence in the agricultural labor market to which, for decades, Oaxacan families have been inserted. from rural communities. From a biographical perspective, the process of incorporation of young Oaxacans into migratory contexts is analyzed, beyond the classic assimilationist or integrationist visions. In the narrative we find trajectories intersected by conditions of ethnicity, “race”, class and gender, which cross the experience of the subjects in the continuous process of appropriation of the contexts of arrival and reproduction of their daily life. It starts from the studies of subalternity and postcoloniality, to propose the process of incorporation of indigenous societies in migratory contexts, from the conditions of domination that have historically impacted their subjectivities; but also from the enunciation and positioning that construct narratives of resistance developed by young people as protagonists of this study.
