There is indeed a list on Mexico, Mexico-L@Tecmtyvm. Subscribe on
Also there is a news group soc.culture.mexican which has good archival
sources of Chiapas material. It can be accessed through gopher, and I
located it through using veronica. Recently on Native-L I received the
following blurb, but I have not checked it out as of yet. (Native-L also
distributes information on Chiapas upon occasion - subscribe to the list on
LISTSERV@TAMVM1.TAMU.EDU). Hope this helps.
