    A Defender of His People

    Directed by Bruce "Pacho" Lane 2005 57 min
    Details
    The Nahua indigenous community of Tepoztlán, in the valley of Morelos just south of Mexico City, is one of the most famous towns in Mexico. Because it is set along the base of a spectacular volcanic ridge—and because it is close to the city—it has become a popular tourist destination, as well a site for weekend homes for wealthy Mexico City residents. Before the tourist influx, it was extensively studied by two famous American anthropologists, Robert Redfield and Oscar Lewis, and others continue their work. Most recently it has become the New Age capital of Mexico, and a popular stopover on the backpacker trail. Amazingly, in spite of all these pressures, Tepoztlán has managed to maintain its own special identity.
