SER Mixe’s model follows the indigenous traditions (usos y costumbres) of shared leadership. For Jose Pablo, leadership is not a heaven-sent gift but a result of a nourishing process. “It takes a village to produce new leaders,” he said. Every young person in the Mixe communities is expected to participate in the collective work called tequio, contribute to the community and serve the community as the leader in different governing bodies and social activities. These three elements — collective work, cooperation and service — represent the indigenous path to leadership that thousands of others before Jose Pablo have taken.
