This chapter examines traditional material culture in Southern Mexico that is untouched by tourism. It asks: What characteristics would we expect to mark culture that is traditional but not tourist oriented? The analysis focuses on aprons worn in markets; nylon and plastic shopping baskets; slogans and names painted on vehicles; and tiro al blanco, a marksmanship and music game at carnivals.

Keywords:   tourist industry, material culture, Southern Mexico, aprons, baskets, tiro al blanco
