Preliminary abstract: Increasingly, indigenous communities are embracing transnational migration as a way to engage with the global market. In the past fifteen years Kaqchikel men from the aldeas (hamlets) surrounding Tecpán have turned to transnational migration from Guatemala to the United States as a means of achieving economic security. As a result of this economic choice migrants' wives, who remain in sending communities, face hardships. In the absence of their migrant husbands, Kaqchikel women find themselves filling roles traditionally held by men.
