Chapter Summary

This appendix presents personal life of Micaela Hernández Meza, Director of Kinal Antzetik. It shows how Micaela grew strong and got organized with other women. Since the year 2001 Micaela is the Coordinator of Kinal Antzetik organization. There are hardly any NGOs with indigenous women as the coordinator. Many indigenous women are going out of the villages to work in the cities, they dont want to continue being exploited as servants, store employees where many times they dont pay them what is their due, there are few opportunities to study, there are no day care centers and now in many indigenous towns only women and old men remain because young people have no other option to leave to survive. Now they are talking a lot about Plan Puebla Panama. Work has also had an impact on Micaela personal life.

Keywords: domestic servant; indigenous women; Kinal Antzetik; Micaela Hernández Meza; Plan Puebla Panama
