ABSTRACT
The following essay analyzes the impact of tourism on the handcraft production made in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco (Mexico), during three stages of the XX century, through the original's craftsmen memoirs, taking into account two lineages with four generations each as well as literature from other disciplines. The purpose is to criticise the role of the Mexican Government and its ministry of tourism and their effect on handcrafting as well as the disappearance and birth of new trades and crafts. This text discusses the role of handcrafts production and tourism in the construction of a Mexican identity through the analysis of memoirs and oral narrative using a qualitative method. Through this, the author shows the potential of oral and family history in the reconstruction of more complex scenarios where economical, cultural, social and political factors of the country find meaning.
