Special Advisor, NW Mexico
Tatiana Amor is the In-Region Coordinator of the Northwest Mexico program for The Christensen Fund. She works with our partners in both in the Sonoran Desert and the Sierra Tarahumara including the Comcaac, Yoeme, Yoreme, Raramuri and Odami fishermen, farmers and pastoralist peoples.
Tatiana has worked with Indigenous People to build coffee, mint and artisan cooperatives in Southern Mexico, helping them to gain access for their products to fair trade markets worldwide. She also founded a coffee shop with local, organic farmers and helped them to establish agroecological methods in their milpas and coffee plantations. For the last several years Tatiana has lived in the tiny town of Creel in the Sierra Tarahumara region, working with Raramuri communities to build food and water sovereignty, regenerate soils through permaculture and exchange educational experiences with other Indigenous groups in Mexico.
She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Latin American Literature from Universidad Iberoamericana and her Master’s Degree in Social Anthropology from the National Anthropology and History School where she is now a Ph.D. student. When she’s not working, Tatiana enjoys spending time with her family, walking in the woods, relaxing at the lake, hoarding books and adopting stray pets.
