Victor Montejo analyzes and interprets this Maya folktale as a way of explaining current transnational migration and dislocation in Maya communities. Through the story and the discussion, we see the many aspects of Maya migration, Guatemalan ethnic relations, and the power of modern global capitalism. Written from the standpoint of the year 2009, “The Rabbit and the Goat” establishes a strong marker in time and allows the reader deep insights into the present.
