Abstract

This article analyses the creation of a new diaspora, that of the Purepecha people, native from an indigenous region in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, which has acquired an im­portant presence in the United States due to the number of its inhabitants living in that country. The geographical position of the two countries has promoted close communica­tions and continuous movements of people between regions, giving way to the creation of transnational Purepecha communities that possess unique characteristics, which give meaning to their ethnic identity and strengthen the notion of diaspora
