Abstract:We discuss the role of women in endogenous community development among the Tseltal indigenous communities in Chiapas, Mexico. This is part of a Tseltal integrated information system that ties community radio, library, and evaluation system to support community development activities that promote the notion of living fully, or in Tseltal language, “Lekil Cuxlejalil.” We identify key themes based on the testimonies of women working in Tseltal community development and discuss how they support the integrated information systems.
