    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The present bioarchaeological and taphonomic investigation focuses on the skeletal remains deposited on surfaces of Lacandon rock-shelter sanctuaries around the Mensabäk lagoon in Chiapas (in particular the ones of Sak Tak and Mensabäk). The Lacandon locals still identify these remains with their ancestors and deities. Here we examine the minimum number of individuals, the age-at-death and sex profiles of those who comprise the assemblages, and their skeletal indications of physiological stress, trauma and cultural modification. Equally distributed between males and females, the series are made up of mainly middle-age adults, with subadults noticeably missing. Al preserved skulls express the effects of cradleboard use (tabular erect form). The pathological conditions recorded in this study appear as criba orbitalia and porotic hyperostosis in the skull, and periostal reactions in the long bones; however, the secondary nature of the deposit limits the possibility of making specific diagnoses.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Este trabajo analiza la aplicación de las políticas migratorias federales restrictivas y controladoras de los años veinte y treinta del siglo xx en Motul, Yucatán, un municipio pequeño y alejado del centro del país. El objetivo es entender de qué manera las decisiones tomadas a nivel federal llegaron a los lugares más remotos y cuáles fueron las posibilidades reales para llevar a cabo, en dichas regiones, lo establecido por el gobierno federal. Se destaca, por ejemplo, que el impacto de esas políticas no fue homogéneo para todos los extranjeros pues entre libaneses y coreanos se pueden identificar algunas diferencias debido a sus propias características como grupos migratorios.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Beekeeping with stingless bees (meliponiculture) in Mexico is an ancient tradition which today is in the process of disappearing as a consequence of changes in cultural, economic and ecological factors. This article reviews the historical background of meliponiculture as well as its potential uses in Mexico. Meliponiculture could be revived, providing an important source of income for peasant farmers in areas where the use of Africanized honey bees is restricted, provided technical and marketing problems are solved. We outline the current weaknesses and the changes needed to exploit these bees to their full potential for honey and wax production and use in other activities such as pollination.
