This chapter reviews events between the 1990s and 2006 that had a negative impact on Oaxaca’s tourist industry. These include a teachers’ strike in 2006 that culminated with protesters vandalizing the Guelaguetza auditorium, resulting in the event being cancelled for the first time in decades. It also examines the immediate or potential financial contributions made (or not made) to the rural poor by private merchants, government programs and cooperatives, and the publicity attendant on participation in the Guelaguetza.

Keywords:   Oaxaca, tourism, rural poor, Guelaguetza festival
