STRENGTHS CULTURAL ETHNOLINGUISTIC COMMUNITIES OF THE MIXTECA PRO DIGITAL INCLUSION PROCESS

O. Allende Hernández, D. Sosa Méndez

Universidad Tecnológica de la Mixteca (MEXICO)
Boltvink (2012), mentions that in the year of 2010 the poverty in Mexico stood at over 93 million poor, of which the population in extreme poverty affects 60.4 million people, with 42% located mainly in localities rural and 26% in metropolitan areas. Likewise, factors like debt, ignorance, diseases, globalization, among others, those prevent that the developing countries are to the forefront in the use of the technology in order to be taken advantage for the socio-economic development in marginalized localities. This fact is confirmed by the study released by the OCDE (2011), where one alludes that the benefits of the technology are not being reflected in poorer societies. Under this scene of poverty and inequality that lives Mexico, they survive 47 ethnic groups of the Pre-Columbian Mexico, of which 16 are registered in the state of Oaxaca. The present study was carried out in the region Mixteca low of Oaxaca State, in the people "Nuu Savi" (People of the Rain), a community ethnolinguistic considered of high marginalization where the native language is Mixteco. Currently the Mixteco people struggling to maintain their identity and preserve their transcendental legacy of their culture, in a world where globalization is responsible for in making ubiquitous new technologies of information and communication technology (ICT), and in particular the existence of Internet. Accordingly, and in this context, the research question is: are there factors in the culture of the groups of minority ethnolinguistic that contribute to strengthening the process of digital inclusion?.
