Abstract

The plight of refugees, for example, the Vietnamese, the Sudanese and the Nicaraguans, has received much attention in recent years. Mostly one reads of communal degeneration and squalid living conditions in refugee camps and a seemingly universal desire of refugees to emigrate to the United States, Canada and Europe, in search of a better standard of living. One refugee group that has remained virtually unnoticed, however, is the Guatemalan Indians in southern Mexico. While in exile they have nurtured and developed their communities, in the hope of returning someday to rebuild the devastated villages they left behind.

Keywords: refugees, Guatemala
