A Mexican Gothic
The Campesinos are the soul of the Mayto area. These farmers came to the areas around Mayto in the 1960's and worked the land. In the early days it was productive and many prospered, it was also dangerous. There were disputes between Ejidos and carrying a gun was not only wise, it was necessary. The disputes and a shortage of water forced many to leave. Only the strong remained behind.
