= cooperative traditional practice in Oaxaca state, Mexico

Description

Bernardo Gutierrez:

" The guelaguetza tradition, from the Mexican State of Oaxaca, can be described as cross between a potlatch and a tequio. The term describes “a reciprocal exchange of goods and services”. Its practice is woven from the reciprocal relations that tie people together. It’s the starting point for family and even village and territory-wide cooperative networks. The guelaguetza also evolved to a syncretic sort of celebration held in the town of Oaxaca." (http://guerrillatranslation.com/2014/03/27/3120/)
