    • Abstract:
      The Yaqui people are an indigenous population with origins in Mexico. Their ancestors escaped from persecution in Mexico to the United States, where they hoped to live unmolested. They migrated around the turn of the 20th century because in the Río Yaqui areas, they were being persecuted and massacred by the Mexican government. Porfirio Díaz, then-president of Mexico known for his dictatorial policies, implemented a program that sought to exterminate the Yaqui so as to expropriate their fertile lands. Many were sold into slavery to work the henequen plantations in the Yucatán. In 1905 alone 15,700 were sold into slavery; two thirds died in the first year of enslavement. Early migrants settled in Old Pasqua Village in Tucson, AZ, at the turn of the village. They now live in six communities. Although in both Mexico and the United States, Yaqui have taken on Mexican ways and intermarried with Mexicans (mainly as a strategy for survival), they remain fiercely independent and distinctive in their observance of their traditional medicine and spirituality, their wariness of outsiders, and their work ethic. This chapter describes these attributes and their implications for health and social services policy and practice.
