    Event Description:
    Indigenous communities in rural Mexico are dealing with changes in rainfall and weather patterns that undermine their livelihoods and food traditions. During research visits to Calakmul between 2015 and 2018, Dr. Murphy saw tourism development promoted as an economic alternative. What happens in Maya communities as the forests of Calakmul are transformed from a source of sustenance to a tourist spectacle?
