More than two million people from the Mexican state of Oaxaca live in the United States, and some have brought their indigenous ballgame, pelota mixteca, with them. Pasajuego is the name of the court on which the game is played. Games between Oaxacan communities have grown into international tournaments that are played throughout California, Texas, and Mexico. However, the sport is not just a pastime; it also keeps the Oaxacan culture alive and acts as a network for the immigrant community throughout the West Coast. Pasajuego is an introduction to an ancient game and a window into the lives of Oaxacan communities.
