Description

Indigenous groups in Ecuador and their traditions, cultures, values, and environments are greatly affected by the majority population. Many Ecuadorians emigrate every year to the United States and Spain for a variety of reasons. The purpose of my research is to investigate how Ecuador’s indigenous groups are affected by the majority population and why some Ecuadorians choose to migrate to other countries. I performed this study by researching a variety of sources on this topic, such as research books, peer-reviewed scientific articles, and reliable online resources to achieve my results. By better understanding the relationship between mainstream populations and indigenous groups, and studying how many groups do preserve their culture and often thrive, we can better learn how to ensure the well-being of these groups. Through this investigation, we learn the reasons and details of Ecuadorian emigration, which can have cultural, social, and economic effects in different countries.
