Two years after Hurricane Mix : indigenous response in the rain forest of Eastern Honduras

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A study of the Tawahka people of Krauspiri, Honduras (now living in a biosphere reserve) and how they responded to Hurricane Mitch (October 1998). A. goal was to assess their use of local resources before and after the Hurricane, which did not directly strike their location but did unleash torrential floodwaters there. Villagers survived by relying on wild resources. After a couple of years some families were much better off than before the hurricane and others were worse off economically. The hurricane also changes the social structure and land-holding practices. - (SLD)
